A direct start to the original "Rinky dink" corner (right hand one). Climb past 3 bolts, 1 pin and some gear to merge into dihedral. Either continue up corner or rap from sling (tunnel thread). This route originally climbed about 15' up the tree, where it then went free up the face (NB). The proper start has since been free'd and protected with and without a stick clip. Pat G freed this route from the ground a short time before NB and DS utilizing a stick clip to protect the sketchy start. Doug S freed it without the stick clip a very short time afterwards. Note: The start relies on a fairly loose and crucial hold that will likely break at some point in the future.
