    I should've climbed this route just to legitimately dispute its four-star rating.

    Does this route start to the left or right of the large pine tree there at the base?

    After soloing Billy Goat Arete and the SE Arete, I couldn't nail down where the start was on the East Face Center. Description notes "just right of a left facing flake system", but there are two of these large flake systems.

    Frosty, I'm assuming its the left line since it says to climb up onto the flake. On the right feature, the flake meets the ground.
