Description:

Finger crack that starts at a bulge next to a tree. Shimmy the tree offwidth style and place a few good nuts from a marginal stance up high. Short crux at the bottom leads to more moderate terrain. From a great stance just under a bulge up high place a small cam (make it bomber) The next few moves are the crux. Avoid placeing gear above you at this point as you'll need all the holds for your hands.

4 out of 5 stars Hard warm up

Followed my partner on this one. It felt hard but did it clean.
Went back and lead it but I had to hand dog it. I still need to work out a little better the lower section right after the tree.

3 out of 5 stars Not just a clever name!

A bit contrived tree start to wonderful locking.
