Description 

This is a fun, easy, flake climb to a slab top out. From the tree, head up and right to gain the flake. Cruise up the flake until it meets with the crack on the left (Good Enough For Government). From there, head up and right past one piece of pro on the slab, then head to the topout. The flake is 5.easy, and the start of the slab is the 5.5 section.

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 is more than enough for the flake, but a DMM 4CU 0.5 (BD 0.4) is the only piece of pro on the slab.

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.
