Description 

From the halfway tree ledge locate a bolt on the left a couple moves off the ground. (Also can be used to access A Walk on the White Side, recommended).

Climb past the bolt to a small roof under a maple tree. Clip a bolt and pull the roof (crux) climbing up on the right side of the maple tree. Continue up a moderate slab past a third bolt which leads to a headwall. Climb the left side of the headwall/arête placing gear in flakes. Finish up the slab and flakes to the tree anchor on top of White Wonder. 170’'

Location 

Start on the halfway tree ledge

Protection 

Standard Rack, 3 bolts

A lovely 5.6-5.7 (although we didn't do the headwall section) interspaced with a 5.9 (or harder?) crux move, which can be avoided by a step or two to the right.

Nice it's great to get some feedback on these routes. I find it hard to grade slab routes. There is always an easier way!
