Follow crack straight up past the blocky start, then hand traverse to the right, then pull up to a vertical finger crack that leads up to the tree, then up a left-slanting flake just up and left from the tree. Step right to a nice sit-down ledge with good cracks to set topside belay. Rated 5.10a/b in the Singer guidebook.

Descent Options:

Scramble down the backside and traverse over to the safety of the loose, mulchy slope.

3 out of 5 stars yeah

The crux for me was the slanting fist crack close to the bottom. The Singer guidebook says this crag does not see much traffic - I guess the reason is the approach is lots of loose sand, boulders and pinecones. I only brought one #3 BD - wished I'd brought more.
