Description 

Thin face climbing chases 4 bolts up and left. Using a stack of cheater blocks, reach the two thin starting crimps, and make a powerful move to get established onto better holds. The crux hits you hard after clipping the 2nd bolt; move left using slopey holds and crimps into the left-facing dihedral and then into more technical (but easier) climbing past 2 more bolts. It is a bit run out to the anchor, the route ends at the bottom anchors for Girly Man.

It is recommended to stick clip the first bolt.

Location 

This is located directly behind the base of the large dead (fallen) tree. Look for an old buttonhead to the left of the 3rd bolt.

Protection 

4 bolts, anchor.
