Description 

Climb the right-angling feature common to Cental Park. At the second tree, head left through a right-facing corner with a quality finger crack. Turn a roof above the short finger crack and follow a lichen covered face directly up to the top.


Location 

This is just left of Central Park, near the top of Hawk-Eagle Ridge. Follow Hawk-Eagle Ridge approach to the top of the formation, just past a slabby drainage scramble. As you turn the corner above the class 3 slabs, the low angle face with lots of trees and this route comes into view. Head another 100 feet up the trail right to the base.


Protection 

Tree slinging down low, nuts in the finger crack and smaller cams on the face above. Standard rack.

There's also a super-quick walk-off option that works for everything from "Howard Placebo" to "Peters Out". The walk-off meanders north then west, hugging the cliff, and deposits you right back at your packs. As of 8-31-13, there was no rap station established on the tree Tony mentioned in the route description.

Not sure I'd sling that tree, but I state the obvious...as of 8-31-13.
