Begin to the left of the tree, move straight up. The first moves are a bit delicate, but the holds get bigger as you gain height. Downclimb the gully to the left or continue all the way up to the "Beer Barrel" tier.

This is a great intro to bouldering for the neophyte. For rank beginners, a toprope is advised. I used it several times for teaching a rock school class the principles of balance climbing. I also demonstrated that it's entirely a footwork problem by climbing it one-handed. One day with rockschoolers, I did the route over 20 times, telling the students that the rock demanded to be climbed and if they were unable to do it, I had to climb it for them.
