If you're up for a bit of adventure climbing and you lugged your trad rack to Nursery, this is the route for you. Some of the moves require a bit of faith but the gear and holds are all there. Prepare to get a little dirty. When we told someone our plan was to clean and FA this route, they remarked, "You can't polish a turd." Well, it turns out you can.


About 30 feet right of "End of State Maintenance" starting in the crack across from the large tree. There is tat and a ring around the tree at the top, or you can scramble up the dirty slope to find a trail you can walk down.


a few C3s and small cams, nuts and singles up to a 3.
