Description

Follow the apparent, right-trending crevice up to the larger/more left tree at a large ledge.

As for the rest of the climbs on the lower tier, this one has lots of dirt, vegetation, and lichen, so watch those feet! Also, some of the flakes may pull off if you tug too hard (trust me on this one).

Location

This route is very apparent. You can't miss it!

Belay from above at the larger tree a few steps below the beginning of Touch and Go (on the upper tier). To descend, walk around behind the big tree and down to the smaller tree.

Bolted rap anchors (one cold-shut and one hanger with chain) will get you down, about 80'.

Protection

SR to #4 Tech Friend, tree anchor. Gillett's guide indicates that there were once slings on the tree, but as of 6/30/13, the tree was au naturel.

Justin-- I agree, not 5.7, but when I am entering these routes I am going by the guidebook grade. The MP consensus scheme will show the "real" grade eventually! Aug 17, 2013

There is potential in this route, but it needs a LOT of cleaning. Protects fine with a rack to 2", I brought the #4 and didn't bother placing it.
Also, it's nowhere near 5.7, more like 5.4. Jul 28, 2013
