Its best to do a short pitch to the base of the corner and belay at the tree. From here continue up the corner, much harder than it looks, it felt like I was using every trick in the book. Hands, fists, stemming, chimney technique, I switched the side of the corner my back was on at least 3 times. If you thought this pitch was going to be 10b then your expecting crack above to be a bomber hand crack. Instead you get a slightly right trending 0.75 camalot crack. You can put your left toe in the crack but your right foot has to make use of flexing lichen covered flakes...this crack takes you to the sit down ledge.
Above the ledge grunt up an offwidth for 15ft or so feet and then tackle a hand/layback crack that would be much easier if it wasn't for all the climbing below.
