Description 

On the far right side of the cliff, find the obvious left-facing dihedral. The route is a little wide and/or flared so it requires some genuine groveling and thrutching. It wasn't all the pleasant, to tell you the truth.

At the top, climb a little higher on loose soil and rocks to a tree with slings. Belay here, bring up the second, then rap off. TRing this route (and the one to its left) is possible, but not recommended due to the rope running over the loose stuff and the cliff edge. (The only anchor for If the Shoe Fits is this same tree, BTW).


Protection 

Mid to large cams up to #4 camalot. Some mid-sized offset cams would work well at the top when the crack becomes flared. 50m rope and some slings for the tree anchor.
