Start near the tree. Go up and left through the wall.First pitch not rated, then 5b A0 (10a free), 5b, 4b, 3b, 4b, 4a, 5b, 3b. 5b is 5.8 YDS. Good anchors, bolts in the harder section.

4 out of 5 stars Not hard, but adventerous.

There is quite a traverse on pitch 6. Be prepared from some rope drag. Otherwise nice. Swapped lead, led 1,2,5,7+8.
