This route lies just a little left of the actual slab routes at Swan Slab. I don't know what the real name is, since it's not listed anywhere, but it runs straight up and left to an Oak tree.
It is a nice short boulder/solo or TR.
Walk to the slab routes and go left along the base. The first easy crack you come to is Oak Tree Crack. You top out on the big open slab where the park service takes kids for the kid meeting things they do all the time.
Fingers pieces or so. This route is best TR'ed via the Oak tree, or just soloed. Webbing for anchor, usual TR stuff, or a pad.

This was the first route I climbed in Yosemite. Great route to break-in on after a long day in the car, get a feel for the local rock, and just unpack your gear. The very start of this one is polished smooth so I would say the crux is the first or second move off the ground.
