Description 

On the west side of the boulder there are two seams leading up and left. Start with both hands on the lower one, feet on and pop to the upper seam with the right hand. Finger traverse left along the seam across the top of the overhanging face to the prow and top out as for Temperance. (The grade is a bit easier if you are tall enough to reach your feet all the way down to the big flake. Keep off it if you want to keep it pure and more pumpy) The name is from Treebeard

Still don't get the name but the problem was fun.

That's because it is a lame name. I have had zero route naming imagination lately, so that was the best I could come up with. Treebeard said it when he was about to go on a tear through Isengard.
Treebeard: "Hroom, hm, come, my friends..."
