After the crux

Description 

Start on the arÍte beside a tree using a good left hand hold and an hidden good right hand hold with a thumbcatch. Make a big move to a jug and then move left around the corner to a good flake system. Continue straight up on good feet and good holds to topout. If you get scared you can rest against the tree near the transition. Also be careful if you fall you will probably hit the tree thus fulfilling the name of the problem.

Location 

Right most route beside a tree and before a chimney.

Protection 

pads

The guidebook gives this route V3 but I feel that V1 is more accurate.

I had a friend actually fall two moves from the top this past weekend. She bounced twice off of the tree and then I directed her onto the pad. She was unscathed from the fall. Good to know for anyone trying to decided to go for it or not. I had one pad to the left of the tree and another one to the right.
