3rd route right of the tree means 4th route on the wall.

I bypassed the direct finish by climbing the gully to the left of the head wall, which significantly lowers the grade.

The stemming in the middle is great fun.

I guess the grade is entirely from the last moves? I got on this without knowing the grade. I struggled and hung going over the last bolt, and was thinking probably 5.9, and that I just didn't unlock the correct sequence at the end. Some of the 5.8/5.9 climbers in our group climbed the final moves without a problem. I guess my point is, someone that doesn't climb 10+ probably shouldn't be scared off by the rating.

I really enjoyed this route, its a technical 5.8 until the final bolt, which is a tough move, but you can skip it by going left or right. If you want to do the 5.8, bring a cam and go right. Or clip the bolt and go left up the chimney.
