This is a fun climb that goes over two small roofs on good holds. The start is a little unique.


This is the first climb left of The Paradox when you are facing the wall.


8 or 9 bolts and an anchor on top.

Crappy start leads to fun climbing above. Crux roof at top with fun chicken heads to yank on.

I am not sure if the FA was done using the tree, but I sure did. It would be really hard and awkward without it. Climbing is really cool after the start.

What a great climb! View, rock quality, technical movement, burly 10a+ roof's all there. Personally, I thought the tree added to the uniqueness. I felt like a kid climbing into a treehouse! I would recommend slinging the tree before traversing out to clip the first bolt, just in case.
