No real clear crux. Do be careful of taking falls since you could easily end up in the tree.


First route on the right, outside.

Not the greatest climb, runout to the second bolt and the anchors. At least the rock quality is good on the runout sections, unlike the rock going to the first bolt.

Didn't like the look of this one, simply based on the fact that there's only three bolts on the whole route and blowing the second clip could put you very close to the deck. Didn't help that I had no guide for the area, so I didn't know the grade going in. 3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (anchor has lowering biners).

Decent route but someone was pretty cheap with the hardware.
