Description 

Climb an easy crack to a slab topout. This is 50m of fun, low intensity climbing. From the tree, head left and up off of underclings to a crack that varies from OW to hands (no real OW technique required). When the crack intersects with the top of the flake on the right, follow the crack left as far as you can, and then set out for an easy slab scramble to the top.

Location 

Start halfway up the dome at the tree on the big, walk-able ledge on the climber's right when looking at the dome (above/left of the top of Shinola/Shits 'n Grins). Access the ledge by scrambling in from the right.

Protection 

A standard rack works just fine, but you could use a BD #5 if you wanted to.

Adding this climb to see if anyone knows any historical info on it. Couldn't find any info on it in the new guides, the 1980s guides, or from developers in the area. Will edit the description as needed if anyone knows about earlier ascents/names. This is just what we called it, 'cause we were off from our gov't jobs that day.
