This route is a bit slabby, but the holds are good. They are mostly small edges. The slab does not look very featured, but there are holds to be found. The hardest part is at about the third bolt. Mainly the difficulty comes from small edges. It is probably the better of the two 5.7s on this face.


This route is on the left side of the crag to the right of "Irie". Start just right of a large pine tree at the base.

Descend from the anchor on top.


Seven bolts and a two bolt anchor.

The route was named for the small shrub growing to the right of the line at 2/3 height, which had brilliant red leaves at the time of the FA. For full value, stay just to the left of the bolt line until the top. Mar 30, 2015

Sorry Josh - I have to disagree - this is not a 3 star route. We all agreed it was MAYBE 1. It's uneventful and still really dirty. It's bolted well and is a nice, easy warmup for the harder stuff in the area or a good lead for new leaders. Will be a nice line once cleaned up and will likely warrant a star. Apr 12, 2015

I'd give it two (2) stars. Nice, crimpy, 5.7 climbing. Apr 25, 2016

Another nice ToZ route in the shade. If shorter (5'6"), some moves with high feet and low hands. If stay on route, clean with no lichen. Some flakes that are questionable- give a good tap before trust. Jun 12, 2016
