Starting out on yet another attempt.

Description 

A couple very long 5.6ish runouts, but otherwise well-protected. If you can handle the crux section, the runouts should be trivial.
Climb the slab using an assortment of gear and bolts for pro to a small overlap at the bottom of the difficulty, a 20' tall section of steep friction with scant holds, protected by 3 bolts.
Passing this to a good stance, climb through the low overhang 8' left of a wide crack with an oak tree in it, then climb up unprotected easy slab, cross the wide crack and finish the last few feet right of it to reach a good belay ledge at the top of the cliff.

Location 

At boulders leaning against the lowest point of the buttress that forms the right side of the amphitheater 150' right of the gigantic corner of the Main Face.

Protection 

Tricams helpful in a couple spots, cams from #00 C3 to #2 C4. This is a long pitch, so don't skimp - but don't overload yourself either. Bring plenty of QDs.
