Description 

Start at the tree that is wedged against the cliff, and climb up the blocky slab to the horizontal flakes. Gain the headwall and make balance moves to the anchors.

Location 

Immediately right of High Steppin`

As you walk to the end of the flat, elevated ledge that houses the climbs Gaggle Of Geese, It's Not What It Seems, and Anniversary, the trail starts uphill past a tree that is growing directly against the cliff.

That's where you want to be.

Protection 

5 bolts plus small cams and nuts

I had a hard time finding this route. I'm pretty sure I found it, but found it very run out and exposed as a solely sport route. I ended up climbing the one next to it and top-roping this one.

Yeah, a lot of the routes on this wall are sorta tough to find, if only because "hike 100 feet from X and start by the tree" is so commonly the description. You didn't happen to snap a photo of the route did you, Matt? I think that'd help people.
