This climbs a perfect obvious left angling hand crack, and then traverses right on a slab to a pinyon pine at the crack's highpoint. Keep you feet in the crack and it is more like 5.8. Protect the second on the traverse with a small stopper. This is a good climb and worth the walk.

I love this route. We came in from the west (Lenticular Dome), so scrambled through some amazing boulders to the base of this pitch. Excellent hands and fingers and then a run out slab lead over to the tree. I placed four pieces, #1, 2-#2's and a #3 I believe. High Strung, Mental Physics and then Room to Shroom...these routes are in perfect order during a cold winter day to take advantage of the sun. With Joe K.
