We took the line up the big crack to the right of the large tree in front of the boulder. Lieback, Jamming, and some crimps holds on the side cracks let you fight through the overhanging section, all while the tree is up in your stuff.
After the overhang, then the short fun off-width begins, which feels like a rest. After that the slabby,slopping top out begins.
Navigate through the poison ivy vines, to the top. And perform the descent shenanigans, listed in the Rumbling Bald Guidebook.
We opt'd for some different shenanigans and down climbed/aided to the "V"in the tree and rappelled 15ft down from there, mainly because the poison ivy along the top was just starting to bud out.
Descent: Perform the counterweight and lower technique, if the ivy isn't bad at the top. Or weirdly down climb into the Tree V and rappel from the trunk.
CRUX: Be ready to think about how to get down.
