Climb the cracks and thin face (crux) up to a decent rest about 15-20' up. Move right and follow the larger crack system and chimney up to the tree. You can anchor on the tree but I find it best to sling the tree, step around it on the outside and move up and right to the two-bolt rap station about 15' above it. You could also continue up and right past the two-bolt station and merge with Ladybug to pull the overhanging corner and gain the Kauffman-Cardon Ledge.

A fun, pumpy and very interesting route that is in-your-face hard off the deck, but protectable with small cams or nuts. Careful in the chimney/cracks below the tree as there is some loose stuff in there. Best done when the leaves aren't on the trees. Gets the morning sun and is nice when the temps are low.


Start on the big Skyline Traverse Start Ledge, about 5 feet to the right of the start of Skyline Traverse's main P1 crack system. Locate the thin cracks that lead up and right.


Standard trad rack with small TCUs/C3s or the like very helpful.
