This atypical route is found on the bulging west face of the formation, which has a large pine tree growing near the base.
Begin by climbing the tree until able to transition onto the rock; a sling around the tree provides some protection before the first bolt. Once established on the face traverse slightly left and then launch up thin, technical moves to a somewhat pumping finish on larger holds.
Overall a very good route with a scenic location, excellent rock and intriguing movement that's a welcome diversion from the slab climbing so common to the area.
4 bolts (5/16"), anchors
