Description:

An easy lead but with no pro until about 15-20 feet up. A good TR for kids or new climbers. From a boulder, step onto a ramp with sidepulls. Climb up ramp to a tree ledge, with what is left of a tree about to fall off. Stick a red tricam in that crack for your first piece. Trend right going up on horns. Sling horns and place pieces in cracks as avaliable. Two shoddy closed anchors at top.
