Some thoughtful moves.
Start on the immediate right side of the tree (trying to avoid using the tree), then up the face.
Finish on a vague arete whose top is about three feet left of the cap rock.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


About eight feet right of the obvious arete/corner, at a healthy tree 8-10 inches in diameter.
