The left-most route on the practice face, Ladybug starts by crawling up toward a bulge with a lone bolt. Past the bolt, bold climbers find success by manteling on slopers, then stepping up a few more feet to some thank-god protection. Above this, the climbing is more casual and less memorable.
It is on the left side of Practice Face.
Small to medium cams, nuts, one quickdraw. Please comment if you know the history of the bolt protecting the crux. Harder to set a TR, as the route's business is farther left than the bolt anchors.

Fun climb but be solid at the grade. While it is easier, it is run-out above the bolt for quite some ways.

Does it finish at the far left of the face, left of the tree? Seems the natural line and clean instead of lichen-covered.... I tried that and eventually backed off to the easy finish right of the tree. Gear was good below the roof; but with a two-foot sling to avoid drag and moving somewhat higher to try to pull over the top (an awkward semi-mantle), it would have been a fairly long and poorly-controlled fall.

Left of the tree. Plug gear, pull up and mantle on to the block. Bit nervy move. This finish seems consistent in grade with the crux.
