Description 

Climb using the crack and large face holds up to a small obvious maple tree where the route eases. Consider clipping a sling high on that to keep the rope running freely. Head up to the large Doug Fir and rap off the ring on the tree. A bolted anchor was considered but rejected for this route.

Protection 

A few small nuts and cams to 1-1/2" although there are plenty of great placements for smaller gear and hexes. This would be a great first gear route for a potential aspiring leader and has been aid climbed by numerous parties.

Dana and I climbed this on 1-Oct-2010. Though short it is a clean and fun route. After slinging the maple tree the route climbs more or less straight up blocks and dirty/mossy rock up to a large fir tree. However if no one is on Urbaby’s Daddy, once you sling the maple tree head left to Urbaby’s daddy anchor, not that it is any more interesting then the regular finish, but you can set up top-rope for Urbaby’s Daddy and have a better rap.
