Interesting moves, but the crux traverse is way harder than the rest.

Start (sitting?) under low overhang under the vertical crack.
Over the hang and grab the crack. Next work up to fingers in horizontal about three feet below the top. Traverse left almost to the corner, then up.

. . ?(or if you're really strong, somehow grab the top without traversing left)?

name: One of the most popular films starring Clint Eastwood -- together with Sondra Locke and Clyde the orangutan.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near 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).


Vertical crack about five feet off the ground, about four feet right from right end of obvious
low roof in right side of obvious chimney at the top left side of the upper Giving Tree sector.

To set up Top-Rope, see Description of Giving Tree area.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.

I still haven't gotten the redpoint (even on Top-Rope).

The holds are there, but I have not yet found the strength/endurance to make the traverse sequence go.

So the First Ascent awaits a better / stronger climber.
. . ? (or me on a better / stronger day) ?
