Description [Suggest Change]
Theres a good horizontal hand jam to get started on, then make several powerfull moves up to and past the "cougar eyes"(twin downward facing pockets). Once you get to the flake at ~18ft the extreme difficulties are over. The quality of the flake is questionable, use caution pulling on this and make sure your belayer is aware also. Continue up and merge right to the anchor on 24 or top out straight up.
Location [Suggest Change]
This route is located on the left side of the face between 24 and the 5.8 Corner. Walk off either direction from the top or rap down(easist).
Protection [Suggest Change]
There's one bolt near the bottom of the route that can be clipped on the lead or by stick. Next the tree can be slung and/or some cams or tri-cams to small hand size would protect the top. There's trees and a boulder at the top for anchors.
