Description 

The crux on the first pitch is probably near the bottom on a slightly run out slabby section. After that the gear abounds and the climbing is low fifth class up to a steeper headwall that will give you pause. This is a nice long route that has a lot of variety.

Location 

This is the second route on Moe Wall. Only a few feet to the right of I'm Too Drunk For This. Look up and locate a Spruce tree growing out of the wall about 75 feet off the ground. The route climbs a plumb line below the tree but when you reach the tree move around to the left and keep going until you reach a bolted belay. From the belay head up to a pin. From there you can go slightly left or right (harder) to reach the top.

Protection 

Single rack to 4". Double up from 1 to 3 inches unless you are ok with run outs. There is a fixed pin on the crux of the second pitch.
