Description 

Start about 100 feet left (north) of the base of the "Red Tree" (now grey stump) descent route at the first decent looking section of cliff.

This route climbs a corner system and starts behind a large oak tree. It is just right of Próspero Año Nuevo (5.10; a bolted corner).

Starting on a ledge about six feet above the ground and behind an oak tree, work your way up the obvious corner using two sets of cracks to an anchor.

Location 

This route is located about 100 feet to the left (toward The Prow/north) of the base of the "red tree" descent route.

The "Red Tree" descent is similar to the Uberfall descent at the Gunks in NY (it requires a bit of scrambling and if you slipped, you could get hurt).

NOTE: As of 01-2016, the "Red Tree" mentioned in the March 2013 guidebook was a grey stump. You could easily see the sawn off grey stump from the top edge of the cliff.

Protection 

Finger to hand sized pieces protect the route. There's an anchor on a ledge just below the top of the cliff to rappel or lower from with one rope.
