Excellent route on high quality rock.
Climb Easily Flakey but instead of traversing right on the ramp go directly up following the ever thinning seam. Crux involves crimping and a tenous high foot above a small nut. Go do it!


Standard rack with small stoppers to protect crux. This gets an "R" rating but it is safe and with an atttentive belayer you shouldn't hit the tree. Once through the crux you can get more gear but should be solid enough to not need it. Bolted anchor.

The tree has been removed and with an offset 00-0 tcu you can protect the crux pretty well.
