Climb the gently overhanging finger crack just left of a large pine tree. As the name suggests, it is possible to bail from this route by leaning back onto this tree, though this is fairly easily avoided while actually climbing. Avoid reaching out left to the large flake system. Complete the climb with a kind of scary mantle (pro beneath your feet with the tree waiting right behind you).


Finger crack left and around the corner from Hole in the Wall. Start on the left side of a large, solid, flake and go straight up. I moved a bit right to finish at the end after the crack runs out.


Small cams, nuts.
