About 15 feet left of People Under the Stairs is a lone bolt. This marks the start of the route. Climb up past the bolt and make moves up to a ledge placing gear. Clip a fixed draw out on the lip of the big roof overhead. Extend your arm way out over the roof to gain a flake and pull the roof. Continue up flakes placing gear on easier climbing to a tree anchor.

The tree anchor has 2 rap rings. They are secured with a double loop of cord and a single loop of cord. There is also a length of sling, but this has been cut in an attempt to remove it I think. I tried to remove the cut sling but could not. I think it needs to be cut in a second spot to remove it. The cords looked old but OK. I would recommend backing up the cords or replacing one or both. I had no way to replace or back these up, but I will next time I climb this. A fun climb. My + 4.5" ape index was helpful reaching the flake from under the roof.

The fixed sling and biner above the roof are still there and looked to be in pretty good shape.
