Description 

This climb is up and right of "Pot Belly".
The best approach is to climb "Pot Belly" first pitch, or go up a gully to the right.
Walk right, to the base.
Follow a crack to a flake, then up knobby rock to a belay at a tree, with rap slings.
Either rappel or climb a flake and more knobs to the top.

Protection 

Pro to 2".

Real good route on good rock. I'd give it 3 stars if it didn't downgrade so dramatically. Worth doing nonetheless as the lower system is all of 5.7 and the upper slab is runout and fun.

Nice route on really good rock. Protection is good. My first climb in Yosemite in over 20 years, and loved it!
