Description 

This is a line on the east face of this rock.

Start just above a funky, upside down U-shaped tree. Piece together flakes and cracks starting with a stemming dihedral, then to a small ledge. Pull gently on a hollow flake, traverse R to a ledge. Continue up a right-facing dihedral to the top. 130'. Walkoff.

You'll pass some very pretty lichen, reminiscent of some pretty chunks of South Platte rock, on your way back to your pack.

Location 

This is on the east side of this crag. It is possibly best located by looking for a funky, upside-down U-shaped tree.

Protection 

Wires, 3 hexes, single set of cams to a #3.5 Camalot.
