Not as cramped as this photo makes it look.

Description 

Avoid using Pitch Pines (which are protected, and banned from use in anchors) at the top; be sure to use the large white pine tree (OK to anchor to) just above this route.

Location 

Walk all the way down the crevice to where it meets the other way in; climb the inside corner past the tree to the top. The crux comes just below the finish. Easy walk-off.

Protection 

Standard rack, well-protected with some bigger gear.

If this is the route I think it is, then there are some deciduous trees farther back (you'll need about 100 feet of static line/webbing) and one boulder that can either be slung (although there's a pitch pine right up against it) or you can use some pro on it, I reckon. Still, tricky to toprope. But worth the trouble.

Au contraire! Large white pine tree (OK to anchor to) just above this route.
