Chimney up the tree (yet another Squamish tree start) to the first bolt. Work your way up past 2 more bolts and a couple small cam placements to the last bolt and the sweet polished rock. The last few moves might make you think...


Directly in between More Than a Pretty Face and The Burglar, at the tree.


Bolts and 1-2 each size Aliens or TCU's etc in the .6" & .75" range protect tricky moves.

Just climbed this today. There is no more tree to chimney up moving to the first bolt. It's a fairly "fingery" sequence...and wondering if anyone thinks the climb should be upgraded without the chimmney?

Same start as the variation to the right (easier and all bolted).

The first bolt is way high due to the fact that there is no more tree. and yes it is an .11a move to get to it. Stick clip recommended. This route shares a first bolt with the fun easier fully bolted route "Fearless Frasier" which leads off to the left.
