Description

Per Mike G-Status: start where the rope drops down, but head left a little to get under the bulge just a few feet up. Pull yourself over, and keep heading pretty much straight up, staying about 5 feet right of the crack. The last move before the midway ledge is the crux... there's a little finger hold for your right hand that you have to really reach for. After the ledge, the moves are obvious from the chalk.

Please edit in.

Location

To get to the Umbrella Tree (aka little flatiron) park at the Crown Rock parking lot. Walk down hill past the Monkey Traverse and in about 200 yards you will see the base of the climb. You can ascend the gully to between it and another face with a fun crack on it. Boulder up the back side.

Protection

Tree and some nuts and cams for TR anchors.

I found this to be quite the sandbag as posted at 5.7...the final overhanging wall after the ledge felt harder than the 7s and 8s I've been on elsewhere around Boulder. However, it's a fun route with solid rock and interesting moves. The best holds are not at all obvious from below. A #2 gold Camalot works perfectly to backup the tree for an anchor. Dec 19, 2017
