This was probably the first route to be climbed as a 'rock climb' at Chinese Mountains, top roped in 1997 by Phil Stone, Greg Shea and Liam Edwards. It was climbing this route and discovering that these crags would take a major bolting effort to make a climbing area that delayed development for what turned out to be almost 20 years.

Great sustained climbing on positive holds with a strenuous mid-section. Start behind the leaning tree up steep, clean grey rock to the left of a boulder-pinnacle to a thin crack in a left facing corner on a semi-detached (but solid) block. Climb over the block into a shallow corner on good holds to mantle onto a narrow black ledge halfway up. Step left on the ledge and then continue direct alongside the tree up a steep, grinding wall. Pull onto a rest ledge and then a few easier moves to finish.


Keep on the right side of the righthand of the two leaning trees.
