Description 

Climb the left facing beautifull tight hands corner to a roof. Step left and set up an anchor off the 2 inch tree! (Bring a hand Drill!!!) Climb the wide layback flake, to a 2 bolt anchor.

There is a 3rd pitch that looks beautifull, it has anchors but know nothing about it

Location 

As soon as the approach tril hits the base of the wall this is the first thing you see..Just look for the 200ft flake from the parking lot

Protection 

Triple set .75-4 camolot. Old Style

The can be a great climb. The problem with doing it in one pitch is the rope will get caught in a pinch at the roof and creat heinous drag. I don't think it's possible to avoid that. Doing it in 2 pitches would avoid that problem, however, the slung tree is kinda sketch. There are some gear options for anchors, but it would still be a bit awkward. As for the "second pitch" flake, you need at least 2 #5 BDs (I would recommend 3 if you don't want to run it out) and a couple of #4s. The guidebook says the flake is 5.8......my o/w must really suck cuz it felt harder......
