Thin and powerful moves up a STEEP section of Lakeview highlighted with basketball size holes. 3 bolts were hand drilled on rappel. The route is named after my newborn daughter.

P1: 5.11b 100 ft. Dyno or make small crimps to a big starter jug, pull a hard mantle/crimp to clip the first bolt. Work balancy moves to another 'thank god' jug and clip a 2nd bolt. Get a yellow TCU in a horizontal, then traverse left towards a large hole and a 'hand in glove' red link cam pocket placement. Clip a final bolt, then up a blank 9+ slab to the good gear belay ledge
P2: 5,7+ 100 ft. Take the path of the most gear to the tree directly overhead.


Far right side of Lakeview, Right of squeeze job and starts right behind a tree. Resist the temptation to use the tree while climbing, or don't.


Standard Rack
Walk off or rap the tree to the ground

Still waiting a free ascent- I fell a lot.

I'd like to lead the 2nd pitch, as well, so let's go!

511b does seem appropriate for the 1st pitch without the three. Maybe 5.10 with the tree.
