Start to the left of Watch Out For That Tree and Lonesome Dove. Head straight up through junky rock, the first bolt is worthless (its around 5 feet off the deck), but can be clipped if you are frightened with the rock quality. Head through a bulge and wander to the right, through a crack, and then left under a large roof block. The crux is as you pull around the roof block. There is a second crux higher up, which is likely more difficult for shorter people. A long reachy move.


8 bolts to chain anchors.

Pulled straight over the block which was a way fun way to do it. Held onto it like a 'fridge and pulled it like a roof. I thought the second crux was a bit harder though. Maybe just harder on onsite than the first crux but the moves were easier when you found the holds. I thought this climb was badass.
