BETA PHOTO: 2nd pitch of Tipsy Trees. I figure it gets it's PG...
Next to the popular Minty, this route gets much less traffic although it features the same steep jugs.
P1. Start up blocks and a face 20' to the right of Minty, pulling through an overhang at a notch, then traverse left on a good ledge to a belay at a corner. 5.4, 90'.
P2. Follow the corner up and a bit right to the GT Ledge. 5.3, 90'.
Rappel from here, or continue...
P3. Escape right or climb straight up. 5.3, 50'.
Descend either left to the Uberfall or Minty or move right to the Madame G's rap station.
Standard Gunks rack.
Me coming up p2, thumbs up all the way!

A fun, well protected route. Great for new leaders. Plenty of possible ways up the first pitch.

Guidebook rates this climb at 5.3 and that seems about right. There is some very loose and broken rock at the start of P2.

The bulge on P1 is tougher than 5.3

Awesome route! Don't bother with the third pitch of Tipsy, instead, follow the ledge to the left at the top of the second pitch to the third pitch of Minty. Nice way to finish.
Be careful of people repelling since there is a rap route that puts the rap line right on the second pitch.
