Finishing off the FA.
Unexpectedly, here is a decent route between 2 other lines already done. With 3 different cruxes, this was a nice find.
Climb into left-facing corner (crux #1) and make a delicate move out and over it, passing a bolt as you do. Climb trivial slab to an overhang, climbing through it easily at a point below a right-facing flake/corner. Climb the corner a couple feet, then move out left onto the slab. Crux #2 is friction, happily bolt-protected. After one dicey move, the going is once again casual (tho unprotected) up to a final headwall, where one more bolt protects the final crux move. A bit more dicey friction leads to the white pine; a small oak tree lies invitingly to the right for those who want off a bit earlier.
Start just below a crescent-shaped, left-facing corner, just left of a mossy streak in the slab.
3 QDs and a couple smallish cams.
