Description 

Nice enough moves, but short.

Up the vague gully from bottom to top and finish to a rock above by a bare tree.

name? quote from 2003 story of immigant to America with betrayal in old country.

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 - (and if possible, behind a large tree).

. . . (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 

Vague gully in the center of slab to left of big overhanging dihedral / open book at bottom of ramp down from center and right end of this cliff.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
