This line was originally published as a top-rope problem on the left side of The Never Ever Slab. It apparently needed a lot more cleaning. Now it hosts 5 bolts and delicate climbing. The first crux comes after the 1st bolt and seems to trend right. It seemed reachy, but even 5'1" climbers figured it out. There is a section below the 5th bolt that has a friable edge (part of which broke), so tread lightly. The second crux, near the 5th bolt, seems to pull you slightly left. Again, this seemed reachy, but a 5'1" climber pushed through.
The anchor bolts are far enough below the tree above that a short rappel or belay would be advised for a top rope. Alternatively, the tree has been used for an anchor in the past.
This lies on the left side of The Never Ever Slab. It is down and left of Dreamtime and left of the Solar Wall.
5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (one with a rap ring and the other with 2 links).
Per Ken Pischke: the 1st bolt is now missing its hanger.
