BETA PHOTO: Routes left to right: Folded Ducks V1-2, Horn Over...

Description 

Start in the big, lowest crack/pocket to the right of the face next to "Folded Ducks." Feet are awkward and deceptively hard to figure out. Pull off the ground to two more spaced vertical pockets, hit the pinch then the horn. Top out on the big, bad holds. Don't grab the sapling like I did and missed the (possible)FA.

Location 

Walk 100-150 yards straight past the bridge from the parking lot on the way to the Fundy or Fisherman's boulder. Walk off the trail to the right into the woods about 150 yards to a dirty boulder. Not sure if it's been climbed before but me and my friend Jared are calling it the Sapling boulder, for the tree growing out of the top. Let me know! The other climb on it is Folded Ducks. Photo to come

The movement on this route is surprisingly good, with an interesting two finger pinch being the crux. This problem would get 3 stars from me if the top out was not covered in pine needles and into several dead branches. If someone cleaned it and trimmed the branches it could be classic!
