Climb left of the bulge, the crux is off the ledge. The top part is fun with good exposure. Thanks to Kent Bruner for the inspiration for the name!

Using the tree at the ledge? That tree doesn't look like it'll be there forever. Don't use tree and let's grade this climb for what it is, a good 5.9. Either that, or maybe I was having an off day when I climbed it. Anyway, this route is fun with three distinct cruxes. It climbs like three stacked boulder problems with breaks in between.

The tree is no longer. Solid 5.9 now. Watch yourself climbing above the ledge. A fall here with a loose belay would equal broken ankles, or impalement on the agave growing right under the bolt. The last three feet are rather grainy and crumbly.

Tree is gone. If you're short, this is harder because climbing the arette without feet is tough.

Use the two holds just under the horn just right of the bolt above the ledge. Get your feet on and pull, its a fun move and that horn is money.
