Figuring out the traverse before committing.

Description 

Climb sloping ledges past two bolts to the base of the crack. Get some good pro at the base of the crack then layback up to the tree (awkward move getting around the tree, get pro in at the block below the tree or risk a nasty fall if you blow it) then layback the nice flake. From top of flake (where it thins) traverse right and climb past 5 bolts on/just right of arete. Belay at chain right of the top of arete. A sweet Pitch! Variation: Climb low fifth crack right of start. (fixed rope at times) From belay ledge (at top of crack) move left onto arete and climb past bolts to belay. This skips the 5.10 traverse move lower down. Moves to 5.8

Location 

Located on the wall directly above the top of 'Tree Frog'. Approach by climbing 'Tree Frog' or by flexing the fixed rope in a corner left of 'Tree Frog'

Protection 

Cams to 3.5 inches, draws for the bolts.
