P1 - 5.5 ~50m
Start left of the glue-ins and head up a dihedral until you reach a small roof, traverse right onto the arete protected by 2 bolts, keep going to a small ledge (possible belay on a cedar on the left).
Head right to an opening and follow the depression upwards angling left.
Look for a roof jutting out of the cliff with a tree covered ledge.
Head up the corner or keep going up and traverse left to the ledge.
2 glue-ins belay/rap.

P2 - ~45m
Traverse right under the roof to an opening and head up. Follow the ramp heading left up to a ledge, head up the wall trending left above the tree ledges.


Look for a clearing with a metal sign on a tree that says Surprenante.


Double finger / hand crack pieces.
Glue in belay/rap under roof and tree belay on top.
