Begin on low angle chunkie rock. Move up left clipping 2 bolts.
Then move left again UNDER a roof all the way to the left side(PG). Watch for chossy rock at your feet.
On left side of roof climb crack to a tree and bolt on your right.
Follow bolts up and left to pine tree growing horizontally out of the cliff.
From pine, clip bolt and continue following bolts up steeper terrain with big moves to blind holds. Anchors are at the very top of cliff.


Climb Sliding board for about 50' and turn left at bolted traverse. Move up to soil ledge near two trees. Belayer may want to clip in to the small smooth barked tree.
The route goes up and left from the tree.


12 bolts plus 2 bolt anchor
