Description 

Lots of interesting moves.

Diagonal left on cracks about fifteen feet or so. Then before reaching the alcove, exit the cracks to right and go roughly straight up, passing through the right end of the right-left zig-zag crack.

Variation 1 (easier): Continue up the double cracks to the 2-3-ft-wide alcove, then follow diagonal crack up right to rejoin main route.

Variation 2 (interesting on TR): When reach the right-left zig-zag crack, go left following the diagonal L-zag crack. Then (with delicacy?) reach left to the vertical crack and step across to the left side of that crack (to join the next route to the right), finish straight up to large tree.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Diagonal left-leaning cracks 10-15 right downhill from two slightly left-trending cracks. About 10 feet right from below a 2-3-feet-wide alcove 25-30 feet off ground.
