This route ascends the facey/cracky start into the corner (where there used to be a tree). them up the corner using some interesting moves involving a hand smear and wierd off balance moves.

Orginaly sandbagged hard at 5.7

Later it was established as the first 5.10 at the New


Route starts just south of Marionette
and the next corner north of Jaws.


Takes great gear.

Strenuous and fun. You'll get a cardio work-out on this one.

One of the BEST routes at the New, period. You will need every trick in the bag to send this sweet line...committing finger locks, hands and chicken wings, chimney action, t-bars and crimps. Solid 5.10a and gears up like a dream. If you find a rest, milk it!
