Description 

Start down low with some good holds. The second bolt looks high from the ground, but the climbing is easy to get there. Take on some tougher climbing involving long pulls on pockets to move through the middle of the climb. There are a couple of okay rests to recover at. From the last bolt, trend right on tough crimps to get to the anchor clip.

This route is in the guidebook as 11d, but might be a touch harder.

Location 

Just left of Cannabis Love Generator, this is the line just right of a wide crack that is just right of two slab lines (Wake and Bake and Legalize It).

Protection 

5 bolts to anchor

This is literally the hardest 5.11d I have ever tried with the most dicey finish ever. The tree has your back, not in your favor either.
