On the first go of the route above the first crux....
Another newer climb right of Cherry Pickin'
- Branching Out
is easier than it looks, for a climb of its steepness.
Crank through a easier-than-it-looks steep grooved section with a height-dependent move to a strange bulge, then move left under the diagonal roof. Turn the roof and move right onto the licheny face.
This climb (or at least the business of it) was previously toproped from the Sending Data
anchor, probably first by Halladay soon after he bolted that climb (I also did this with Mark S. in '07, and Walt Whetham said he TRed a similar line), but it required lots of cleaning to become enjoyable, and it could still use a bit more scraping off the flaky layer at the first bolt.
6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
Pulling up over the roof into lichen-ville above.

More holds keep breaking off the bottom crux. I think the difficulty of this route is slowly marching upwards.
