Description 

Variety of interesting moves at the difficulty grade.

First up along the right side of the big tree - (using the tree is OK) - (using the left-facing flake farther right is Not).
Next up a mini-gully on the right side of the mini-arete which rises up from the big tree.

Then a long ways up slanting rock along the right side of the obvious wide gully and along the left side below the crest of the central rib.

A gentle section up to the top rock. See the crack on the right side of the top rock (between the main rock and a detached obvious nose). Finish up some combination of that crack and the face on its left.

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).

Location 

Below a very large tree on the right side of wide dirty gully on left side of Dragon slab. A few feet left of the obvious nose at the bottom of the Dragon slab.
