Description 

If you like working out moves without positive holds, this is for you. After an optional tricky start, a "warmup" on already-not-so-positive holds, then gets trickier as go higher.

First get up onto the large rounded ledge. The trickiest is to start just right of the big tree, and go straight up (without using the tree). But it's sufficiently interesting to start on the left side of the tree using the same start as for the Loyalist Crack. Or if you already did that, can just walk around the right side of the large ledge.

Then straight to the top, staying about five feet right of the crack.

. . . ? Name of route ? The British came up with a new "pro-freedom" recruiting strategy for
. . . . the American Revolutionary War, which triggered a parallel strategy for the Patriot side.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

The (blank?) face about five right of the obvious vertical crack in the right half of the main face of the Left side of the Jersey Vols sector. At a large tree at its bottom.

Protection 

Top-Roping: Straightforward to set up top anchor with static line. Hike+scramble around the right side to reach the top.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
