DescriptionBouldery start from 10 feet off the ground (crux) provides spice from the get go (stick clip the first bolt if you want piece of mind). Stay on the slab at the very left edge. Second crux is pulling the smaller bulge (grabbing the tree reduces the difficulty). Saunter up the rest of the way to the bolts.
P2 goes up and left. After clipping a couple of bolts, wrap around to the large chimney (use a 48' runner to reduce drag). Climb the chimney/crack straight up. Clip the final bolt to gain the summit.
LocationJust left of Midnight Visitor--about 5 feet left of the tree on the edge of the large slab.
Two raps to get down with a 60, which just barely makes it to the belay ledge. A 70m would provide better piece of mind. There's an exposed walk off.
