Bottom is the perfect warm-up to this area (very easy on the fingers with some full body movement). Rating is based on crux at the top.
Bit of sneaky start to first bolt. 2nd bolt is easy to miss, as it is a chunky scramble to the 3rd bolt. Head toward the right of the tree and follow the diagonal flake/crack to a horizontal crack, which is the intro to the crux sequence. Top is balanced face climbing.
I think it is the first climb from the left on the east (but feels like south) face of the Branching Out Crag. Follow the trail down along the wall till you get to an uprooted tree and you should see the first bolt just above head level.
Another view of our send princess before she becam...
Corina getting close.
Just a body length to go.

A good route with fun climbing up a rail then a much harder finish than the rest of the climb. The fact that it isn't sustained at the grade I have to give it two stars. Well worth doing. Jim said it is the best FA you have ever done! Which for those of you who know him means one thing it is the only FA Corina has ever done. Nice job.

I am torn as to whether this route should have ended a bolt lower. The final sequence, while nice, is completely out of character with the rest of the climb.

Had a great time with this route, the finish was much harder than the rest of the route but I enjoyed it. I imagine it would have been much harder for people with a short reach.
