full of moss, not my fav route that day but "...

Description 

Climb steep smooth face using arete on right, pull through an overhang, move slightly left and then scamper up a blunt arete and around a big block. Shares anchors with A Few Tense Moments and is therefore also easy to set up for a top-rope from above, although you might want a directional quick-draw lower down.

Location 

Face climb 10 ft. right of A Few Tense Moments.

Protection 

8 bolts to quick-clip chains.

This route and many others needs to be cleaned. Lots of lichen and dirt. It was a pain in the ass to clean as you get lowered into a tree/bush far to the left of this route. This climb makes for a great warmup!

Agree that you lower into a small tree on the left with loose dirt/scree, but manageable. Route has a nasty little mossy covered high step to the second bolt.
