Anthony past the crux on Cherokee
Climb up and right to the shallow open book. Move up to good holds (crux)and a decent stance. Diagonal right to a right-leaning fault and at its top, climb past reddish rock to a large block. Go straight from there to the pine tree on top of the buttress.
See the description for Wolf and the Swine. Cherokee is left and down the hill about 50 feet from the start of that route, left of the very large Animal Farm block.
Tiny cams such as Metolius OO and 0 are needed to protect the crux. Otherwise, a standard 'Gunks rack will suffice.

Great Route. Well protected and gives full value. Finishes through a nice roof for some final excitement.

I thought the crux is protecting the crux without eliminating the key hold...
