A nice tree to have at the start. Ben climbing, Ro...

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


Start at a tree and follow 3 bolts up a slab to the hand-fist crack exit. The route required extensive cleaning. This climb is reminiscent of FIUTT on Mt. Lemmon Highway in Tucson. And like that climb, it will become harder if the tree were to die.


Ten yards right of The Shortest Night.


3 bolts, #1-#4 Camalots. Bolted rappel/belay station at the top.
