Begin on lower ground with a bouldery start (low crux). Left hand in crack at groove and pull around low arete on crimpers and slopers - balancy and fun! Easier option starts at low ledge 6' up from start (along lower cliffline trail). Make your way to the base of the arching tree and stay left (i.e., squeeze between tree and cliff face). Delicate feet get you to the slight overhang. Grab some reachy holds for a slabby topout requiring a high step, and scramble to the top. Variations to the right and far left of the tree go at the same grade.


On the right face of the buttress situated on the far (climber's) left side of the Playground. Look for the arching tree at the start of the steep stuff.


Top Rope. Sling the boulder just above the slabby topout (requires a downclimb), and/or trees at top. Bring lots of rope/webbing! Tricky lead with no protection at top.
