Follow the line of bolts behind the tree. Save a bit for the top, because the crux comes between the last bolt and the anchor. It is possible to traverse straight left and finish on "Party Line" for an easier, 5.11a variation.


Four bolts to a two-bolt anchor (shared with "Party Line").

Climbed this yesterday, fun route but a few dangerous holds. One juggy block left of the second bolt is loose and there's also a very loose fist-sized block in the seam over the first ledge between the first and second bolts. Watch out for it as it's the most natural hold (used as a left-hand sidepull) to get up to the second bolt.

Fun climb besides the loose rock and horrible belay station.
