Description 

This is a odd line left of the nadir of Pulpit Rock. Initially, I thought it started as for Tiptoe Through The Tulips, but I was informed that it started to the left below a tiny tree, although the other start may be a better variation.

Start on a lichened slab under a tiny tree. Here you have 2 choices:

Left version: go up an innocuous looking crack in a dihedral. Below the tree, the feet become smears and the crack is a bit challenging to use. Stay focused and get the tree. Move up and right to a belay in a hole at the top of a flake, 115'.

Right version: Angle right to gain a smoother slab with a bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13). Clip and smear upwards (crux). Above you are faced with a choice of left or right. Left seemed to be more independent, so we went up the awkward bit to the tree. Continue up past a bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13). You can continue upwards as for Pulpit Rock Left or traverse and downclimb the knobby slab to the bolt anchor (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13) for Vegetative Estate.


Location 

Start to the left of the water groove of Tiptoe Through The Tulips below a tiny tree.


Protection 

2 bolts (which seem to have been removed as of 5/14/13) & a light rack to a #2 Camalot works.
