A great highball arete that requires a bit of technique and balance. Sit or hang start at the base of the arete on the right and follow it up and left with heel hooks, smears, and arete pinches. When it finally goes vertical, look for the jug out left and topout. Be careful not to fall off into the tree.
Above Hairway and Counterclockwise, this arete is hard to miss. Approach the upper tier from the left of Instant Hippie. Walk off the back of the boulder and circle around to the left.

Awesome route, striking, great rock, that tree really sucks though. Think it'd be a bit harder than v0 not using any of the other rocks/pedestals around for feet at the start, but I think it climbs much worse that way.
That tree just sucks, it turns a great highball romp on good holds to awkward branch-breaking no-fall territory.
