Follow the dihedral behind the tree to the top. The large boulder at the bottom is on as a variation.

3 out of 5 stars Tight squeeze.

Fitting in between that tree and the face is... interesting. Those with some extra beer girth in the belly will find it daunting. ;)

Wear a helmet as you will probably hit your head going under the tree...

The guidebook says that it's a 5.6, but it's much more like a 5.5-; decent feet, a couple tricky spots, good placements. One hollow-sounding flake with an acceptable hex placement behind it (don't use a cam, there). Bring a mix of large and small pro (green alien to black Tech Friend). Mostly passive pro.

Fun route. Crux half-way up.
