An adventurous lead at the grade! Don't bother looking for the anchor bolts at the base listed in the select book, either they have been removed or were never there. If climbing straight up from the fallen trees you can place a piece or two at the horizontal cracks half way to the first bolt. Even better, traverse in from the large jugs on the left, placing a piece on the way. Don't get too excited about the finger crack at the top, it is flaring for the first few feet until it straightens out and will accept a #1 mastercam. Not really dangerous, but definitely a heady lead, worth a try, especially if you're toproping it.
