Farris says: Just to the right of The Tree Route. Pass to the right of the dying tree, and join the Tree Route near the top. Instead of the same finish, finish in a short crack above the flake.
The exact line is not that important (to me, I guess - maybe to others it is). If you set up a rope for either of these routes, there are then several ways to enjoy the rock on the way up. It all climbs well, it's all 5.10, and its all clean.


Just right of The Tree Route.


TR, trad?

A solid, clean route with a balancy and technical crux for the grade. It is a thought provoking lead that protects fairly well. The lower half (crux) takes gear, and the upper half climbs past four spinning 1/4" bolts. Bring long webbing for anchoring at the top.
