Description 

Start at an overhanging section using some nice face holds and hand jams. Climb the crack straight up to the large flat area with a slung tree to the right. Continue to the left to a large ledge (really just a scramble), or rap from the tree (this significantly shortens the route). The ledgy area is also the top of Revoked.

If you continue the climb from the ledge, scramble back to the slung tree and rap.

Keep in mind, the beginning moves are harder than 5.5.


Location 

Left-side crack of the pillar that is to the right of Crooked Crack.


Protection 

Medium gear for the route and large gear for anchor

Not really that great of a route. Protects well. Can build a gear anchor to belay partner up at rappel bush.

The route is a great beginner trad lead. Great stances for easy pro. Great belay ledge. Agree with other comment that it is easy to build a trad anchor in the crack below the rappel tree.

The last gully part after the ledge before the tree appears run out, but there is a spot for a small nut on the right hand side of the gully about half way up it. Very easy gully climb.

There is *maybe* one move in the beginning that's 5.5+, but I feel that the climb is a 5.5.
