This climb would be OK if cleaned up, notable mostly for justifying those huge cams you bought but never use.
P1: (V1) Climb the flake/corner to its top, then walk across the slab directly right, passing around an overhang to reach the fat crack. Climb up to an oak tree growing out of the crack and belay. 65'
P2: Climb giant crack in slab to the top. 45'
V1 5.8: Climb slab slightly right of directly below crack, reaching a right-facing corner after several dicey moves.


At a flake leaning against the main cliff, forming a right-facing corner (same as O'Tom's Tick Twister) near the left side of the slab.


Cams to #5 C4. Yes, that's right. Possibly doubles of the big ones.
