Between the two trees, this spectacular face climb follows three bolts.


Between a tree and a tree-stump of similar diameter about eight feet right from the tree, below three bolts.


Three bolts plus a two-bolt top anchor.

Now one of the two trees at the bottom has been sawed and removed, so now this route starts between a tree on the left and a stump on the right, about eight feet apart.

Left of "Great Expectations" (bolted) and Right of "The Murky Way" (bolted) - (which is Right of "Lavwelle Latte" (bolted).

. (Might be only three bolts now instead of four?)

Variation (easier but not so well protected) is to traverse Right partway up, then move back Left about eight feet below the small upper roof. Plenty of interesting thoughtful moves (while avoiding the thin tricky crux of the main route). At most USA areas, even with using this Variation to avoid the crux, the overall climbing would still be rated harder than 10a.
