Impressive and super dangerous old route over roofs and up a black streak.
Since the first pitch only had 2 pieces of pro, the first a missing piton, there is probably no way to repeat the lead of this route without bringing hammer and pins (where they managed to get a pin is not clear - looks like maybe a knifeblade?).
Currently the pro bolt and the anchor bolts are old rusty 1/4" with Leepers.
Start by the big three-trunked tree, and climb up and left for 50+ feet, slamming a piton in somewhere. Then work up to a 1/4" bolt, and climb a long ways above it over roofs and then up a thin black streak to a 2-bolt belay (old bolts).
Another pitch or two of easy climbing leads to the top.
