Crux is the tight heal hook at the start or the sloper top out. Half way up the route, is a great three finger under cling, leading up to a small crimp. This route has a medium overhang that will throw your head and back directly into Boulder 3A, if you happen to peel off. I don't have any information, if this has been established, so I will post this as the FA until any new info surfaces. While I was establishing this route, an elderly lady walked up, and started telling me how angry she was about climbers pulling up her Oakleaf Hydrangea. After 30 minutes of talking, the name just stuck.
This route is on the section of Boulder 3B, that is facing the river. Your back will be facing Boulder 3A
I used only one pad, which was very risky, at the base of the route. If I was attempting this with less experienced people, I would bring a few more pads to use on the backside of Boulder 3A and one or two on the ground.
