A nice 2-3 pitch route that feels more sustained at the grade than the Line or Scimitar. There are still some loose blocks, especially close to the start, so pay attention to what you pull on.
P1: Follow steep shallow corners and cracks to a decent ledge.
P2: A short pitch (technical crux) over a small roof to the base of the "Tree". This pitch can be fairly easily linked with the first (190').
P3: Follow the crack to a really fun 5.9 roof section to the top. Originally the tree was climbed, but the tree has died.
Walk off standard east wall descent.
Obvious landmarks are "The Tree" itself.
