There are two ways to start:
1) Start left of the tree move up the 4th class corner and then traverse right out low onto the blank face behind the tree or
2) Start right of the tree up blocky terrain trending left.
Either way, aim to end up just below the big obvious flake feature on the right end of the roof. Get some good gear here and then fire up the flake (crux)!
From here on the climb is easier, incredible, and reminds me of some of the classic moderate single pitch climbs in places like Joshua Tree or City of Rocks. There's some thin face climbing, another small and easier roof feature, and even a well-protected stemmy section. Continue to the chains and enjoy the clean white granite goodness!
This pitch alone is incredible, but combined with the best of the rest of Guides' Wall this has to be one of the best overall rock lines in the Tetons!
