DescriptionLess clean than Lollipop and without a dedicated anchor, this route will probably continue to fade into obscurity.
The left variation of this may be called Guanxi, but the guidebook was too clear, and neither route are popular or distinct enough to warrant two entries.
Either smear up the corner to the ledge to the left or climb the brief layback flake to a finger crack. If staying left, pull a brief bulge and move right onto the slab. If climbing the finger crack, pull a few strenuous moves to the same slab. From here, it's a dirty, mostly-unprotected scramble up-right and then back left to the anchor tree.
There is also a brief finger-crack off the ground to a leftward traverse that joins these two options. Probably harder.
