Better make that grab.

Description 

This is located in the little alcove to the right of the Tree Slab face. Start from some chalked underclings with your feet on a slab with a crack running through it. Move you right hand up to the sloping lip. Pull up with the left to a small crimp on the left side of the little arete. Heel hook right and go for the top.

It has a back breaking landing on the boulder below without a spot. This has good, positive holds, fun moves, but it is short.

Protection 

Spotter.

Great movement, but seriously bad fall if you blow the final reach (or any of the last few moves for that matter). Really hard to spot too...

I wouldn't attempt it unless you are a very solid V2 climber.

This one has a nice alternative where you traverse right to left...go across the starting sloper, around the corner, and onto any of the Tree Slab traverses. If you are in need, do something new.

The good left hold was broken on this last time I was up there. The route is a little harder now.
