Start on a jug on the far right. Climb straight up not using the ledge as a foot. Decent crimps and edges get you to the horizontal jugs. Finish straight up just left of the tree.


far right side of "The Roots" face.


1 pad, spotter. The climb goes straight up and the landing is very flat. This is a much shorter climb than "The Roots"
