Description 

This climb is nearly a variation of the route 'Move Like A Stud.' It is less strenuous, but more devious. Start just right of M.L.A.S. and just left of a huge pine, growing against the cliff. It is apparent that this tree was "trimmed" at some point to facilitate the climbing here but not to any significant amount.

Climb up from the lower right to reach up under a junky-looking flake, which is surprisingly, quite solid. Reaching left under this will produce a tank-god jug. Getting to this point though seems insecure and the first bolt is above. Be confident/solid, get a spotter, or stick-clip the first bolt. Climb to the first bolt, up to the second (don't get sucked left) and then do the crux, which is moving up and left into the crack of "Move Like A Stud" which you join just after its last hard moves. Continue on that climb to a fixed anchor up top.

Protection 

2 bolts before cutting left and joining 'Move Like A Stud' which can be protected from that point ona single light set of cams. Getting to the first clip was a little insecure/scarey, but not hard once I knew the holds.
