This climb starts just below and right of where a broken tree touches the wall. It's between Aunt Fanny's Pantry and Book of Revelations. It doesn't get climbed much so there's lots of lichen on the first 40 feet.

Climb up to the first bolt and then make a reachy move (5.10) to gain a hueco. From the hueco clip a second bolt and then climb up and left. This section is the crux and I couldn't figure out how to do it without using the tree. After the tree climb up a nice low angle face that's mostly 5.7-5.9, past a couple more bolts. Finish up the right side of a flake to a bolted anchor with chains.


4 bolts and a light rack for the top.

I placed one 0.5" piece and one 3" piece.

Start moves were fun and intricate. Took me a few tries to stick the hueco. After that, the mantel onto the slopers I found really hard. The top section had thick moss, and the run out to the next bolt did't feel safe enough, so I pulled my draws and down climbed.
