Description 

This is a good route. Follow your choice of multiple crack systems to the right of Pineapple Thunderpussy. The first pitch is low angle, easy fifth class, and can be a little bit dirty. Belay at a tree on a ledge approximately 60 feet up. Then work up and slightly right, through a short chimney, into the main crack systems. Enjoy the romp up the rest of the climb. This is a long pitch, and rope drag can get bad. Keep this in mind when placing gear. Exit to the right at a tree, before the very top of the buttress. The climbing becomes much more difficult if you don't. Belay at this tree.

Location 

Foxtrot is located on the crack sytems to the right of Pineapple Thunderpussy. To get down, walk off right from the belay tree atop the second pitch. There is one exposed section along a narrow ledge. You could belay this if necessary.

Protection 

The route follows good crack systems. A standard rack will suffice, if you are comfortable running it out on easy terrain. Adding extra pieces from BD .75 to 3, and a 4 would let you protect it quite nicely. I have not seen any fixed pro, and both belays are trees.
