Description 

Variety of interesting sequences, including some delicate slab footwork.

Start up the right half of the triangle up to the horn at its top (without using the left-facing corner on the triangle's left side).
Next up the left side of the face with careful slab footwork (without using the flakes to the right).

Across a gentle section, then up to the top on left half of detached nose on right side of top rock. (Or for more entertainment, before the top rock traverse way left and join the finish of the route Dragon's Throat).

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 

Triangle of attached rock between the very large tree and the obvious low nose -- which is about a foot thick, and whose left side is a vertical left-facing corner/flake, and whose right side is a left-slanting rounded thing with a horn near its top.
