This obscure route is a classic Gallatin gneiss journey of technical face climbing and creative gear placements. It's safe but will keep you on your toes. Truly one of the best in the canyon. Do it!
This is the classiest, cleanest looking line around the corner from the mothers day route on the lowest bench of the north face of the mothers day formation. Scramble up some ledges to start the route climbing around/over a small roof down low to face/crack climbing up an incipient seam to reach the tree anchor.
I re-bolted (replaced the single 1/4in bolt with a 3/8in) and replaced the pitons in 2010. Carry cams from 00''-2'' and a set of nuts.
