Keeping your feet high for the initial lieback is the key to this one. Worthy of a quick set-up. Feb 12, 2006

Back in the day we used the branch directly above the top of the route which provides a bomber natural anchor (one runner hitched around it with a locking 'biner Try it out and a sit start to add a few moves!

While that method of a toprope (via the tree limb) may have some merit from a historical perspective, I think the use of the bolt(s) offers a bit more sustainability from a resource conservation stand point. Mar 27, 2007

Very fun and quite reasonable as a boulder problem. Good warm up for other stuff. Oct 1, 2013
