Description 

This is my favorite route at Rimmon to solo cause it looks pretty serious but the holds are really good on the steep part... The moves are super fun and there are many places to just sit and chill... On a rope you can do it in one pitch or two depending on what you are looking for...

Start in the corner crack 10 feet right of the little overhang.... Climb the corner to a small pine tree on a nice big ledge... Continue on easy ground up and right to a roof with a ledge and a very small pine tree on it... Climb over the roof and on to the ledge to left of the little tree... Sit on the tree ledge with your feet hanging off, trust me it is a really nice spot... After taking it all in step behind the tree and up on good holds to the top... Belay from a tree or anchors to the left...
