Jimmy high up on tree hugger


Begin just left of a big tree below a pod. A hard move off a side pull at the third bolt starts the steep climbing. Traverse right on jugs before tackling steep pockets and flakes culminating in a big move above the last bolt just right of the tree. It may feel like the tree is right below you but the line keeps it off to the side. A 2 bolt extension after the anchors keeps the journey going on vertical rock but may be wet.

Another high quality line at Midnight Surf at a modest grade compared to its neighbors.


Starts just left of the tree that touches the wall and traverses right to finish to the right of the tree. To the right of Vortex and left of Shiva.


9 bolts + anchors (optional 2 bolt ext)
