Description Suggest change

Find the tree close to the cliff with a key embedded in the trunk near eye level, on the cliffside of the tree. The keyring has broken off of the key (and it is sometimes replaced) so you may need to look hard for it.

The route ascends a dark brown slab starting from the tree. Climb the lower slab to the blocky 4th class ledge, then climb the outside corner hanging overhead. The route touches both faces of the outside corner. A routefinding extravaganza!

Location Suggest change

Find the 12+ inch diameter oak tree about 4 ft from the cliff with the key in it. About 60-70 yards from where the path splits going down to Geriatric and up to Cake Walk, this climb begins just beyond where the path rises to reach the big elevated dirty ledge where Gaggle of Geese, Old Crow and High Steppin' start.

Protection Suggest change

Can be done with only bolts. If 5.7 is your limit, bring a couple cams for the slightly runout section midway up the climb (it's not that runout, but some will want an extra piece of pro)
