Description 

The beginning of this excellent route involves establishing a belay at the top of a ramp, clipping a bong (for your belayer's sake), and then trending up and right to get to the first bolt. From there, the fun starts, with the option of pulling on a small tree (which I most certainly did), or traversing around it. After the tree, the moves get harder, with a nice no-hands rest on a ledge about two thirds of the way up. The trick is convincing yourself to step back off the ledge onto the crimpy headwall to finish it out.

Location 

This route starts at the top of a left-trending ramp, in the first section of lighter-colored rock. It runs up an obvious orangish face with a tree sticking out of it.

Protection 

Bolts to anchors.
