After clipping the first bolt, mantle up awkwardly onto the face. Move up following the seam, climbing mostly to the left. Some nice holds lead up through the face and slab right up to the top of the cliff.

A nice easier route that is not quite as greasy as some of the more popular easy warm-ups. It's a little weird getting onto the ledge and maybe as hard as the route.

Beware of poison ivy growing up the wall between the ground and the ledge below and to the right of the route.


This is the second route from the left end of the wall. From Prototype wall walk about 100 feet along below a roof to where the ledge sticks out. There are 2 routes that start off of the ledge, this is the right one and starts by standing on the cut off stump of the "Tree" that is no longer there.


5 bolts to a bolted anchor.

This is confusing, pretty sure the tree is still there and you start literally in between two branches of it heading up to the first bolt.

@Jay: That sounds like Let the Wallies Loose, another 5.9 at Mai Tai. Tree is a good bit farther left. The stump is certainly still there (as of 07/17 anyway).

I know you posted 2 years ago, I'm mostly replying for other peoples' sake. It is confusing at first.
