Just climbed this yesterday. A fantastic climb that deserves more traffic, even if the inside of the crack is a little wet like yesterday. As much fun or better than similarly graded routes in the Orange Blossom walls.
The tree with slings at the top appears dead and is a good distance back from the cliff edge.
Ring anchors on a climb like this would be valuable to help to reduce the impact on the trees above. Alternatively this climb has a quality crack for building toptope anchors on gear toward the top. Would recommend building an anchor if multiple followers are top roping the climb.
Great climb, highly recommend!

|Pretty good route, but not as high quality as the classic 5.7's at the other end of the cliff. Worth doing if in the area, but not a destination climb. Also, getting to the anchor involves clawing your way up 30 ft of loose, scrubby terrain.|
