Description 

Variety of interesting sequences.

First up along the left side of the big tree (dirty). Or more interesting (and cleaner), start up the right side of the big tree, but without using the tree at all - (nor the left-facing flake farther right).

Next up the mini-arete which rises up from the big tree (without using the mini-gully on its right). Then up in the wide gully to a crack in its center (above a small bulge). Up the crack.
. (Variation: Also fun is to make a big step to the left side of the side gully, and up left-facing flakes).

A gentle section up to the top rock. Finish with two small roofs. Can take the lower one with a left-facing side-pull / horn. The upper mini-roof is left of the wide crack between the main rock and detached obvious nose. Climb over this without using holds on the crack.

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.
