The crux is not getting whacked in the face (or impaled) by the Hemlock branches. Not sure how you climb this line without leaning on the tree.

There are actually two cracks that you can send. The left one seems to protect better.


Route is located right in from of the Hemlock tree.

There is no anchor. Once you get to the horizontal under the mini-roof, you can either move around the corner left and finish on Bombay Crack. Or, traverse right (save a #4) to get on Fern Crack, in which case you'll have some serious drag.

This line is pining for a bolted anchor and some tree trimming.


#4 and then a #6 if you decide to finish on Bombay.
