This route would be so much better if that darn tree wasn't there. Start in the alcove just to the left of Scoops. The rock is steep and sandy for the first 3 bolts and the moves are very bouldery. After gaining a stance above the large pod, the angle lessens and the climbing slowly becomes more technical. As you proceed higher, you'll begin to go directly behind the tree. Just before the last bolt, it gets very thin. As much as you want to climb away from the tree, the best holds pull you back to being behind it. After the last bolt, it's big positive holds to the finish but a fall here probably puts you in the tree.


Just to the left of Scoops (51)


7 bolts, chains.
