Description 

This atypical route is found on the bulging west face of the formation, which has a large pine tree growing near the base.

Begin by climbing the tree until able to transition onto the rock; a sling around the tree provides some protection before the first bolt. Once established on the face traverse slightly left and then launch up thin, technical moves to a somewhat pumping finish on larger holds.

Overall a very good route with a scenic location, excellent rock and intriguing movement that's a welcome diversion from the slab climbing so common to the area.

Protection 

4 bolts (5/16"), anchors

I would love to see the location and photos for this route. Sounds really interetsing. Could anyone help me out getting that info?
