Description 

Either start directly under first bolt and lieback up to "the plank" or start slightly right and climb out good holds to first bolt. Make powerful moves then clip 2nd bolt and pull over right onto the to face/corner system. Stem up to large roof, exiting left to gear and jugs (the holds can be seepy here but it doesn't impact the difficulty too much). Get high stance to clip 3rd bolt out right. Pull awkward move around corner to a stance. Watch rope drag here. Stem and pull up and left past jugs to the tree anchor. Watch out for the snake... Note: the block under the 1st bolt moves, but seems to be chocked in well.


Location 

Right side of the "pulpit"
