Description 

Start as the same as Out of the Forest, climb the crystals until you’re on top of a ledge then break right until you are under a brown slab. Place gear and climb up on the brown slab and run it out until you are under a twin roof (crux). Traverse right under the roof to gain a finger crack and then surmount the roof. Climb up to a large low angle slab then traverse way left and finish up a blocky arête. There is a strait up version at the top but it was done ground up and didn’t have time to clean it on the lead, but it will be done.

Location 

Traversing from right to left below the face of the buttress this is the first climb you will come to. This climb starts at a medium sized oak tree in front of a right facing corner formed by a stacked block on the left and a featured looking white quartz dike in the center

Protection 

Trad gear up to BD#2 to a pine tree anchor
