There are three sport routes in this area. they're all within the 5.10- range. which routes are which is often confusing. it doesn't really matter that much, they're all fun and they all sport either old bolts or spaced bolts, or both. the route to the furthest right of these routes (Guitar Man) starts with a spinning rusted 1/4" bolt that "protects" the crux.
No need to belay off of a tree, it's not much of a tree. The two bolt anchor at the top of the steep slab can be used for all three routes and has chains.
