DescriptionThe [nick]name says it all. Locate a bush growing about 20 ft. off the deck. The start of the route will have you pass the bush on the left side.
Climb the bolt line to the left of the twin cracks that mark the route Sharp n Airy. The route is defined by a wandering, rounded-edged crack. The bolt line is hard to miss. Climb the fairly sustained brack to the crux up high. Look right and you will be able to see one of the guard towers from the older sections of the GREAT WALL OF CHINA. Pass to the right of small tree growing from the face, and aim directly for a ledge next to a large, detached flake.
AVOID using the flake if you can: (1) using it makes the finish awkward and cruxy (2) it seems pasted on the face by some act of God
