This is sport climbing. Slightly overhanging wall, big holds, big moves! Head up out of the tree, pull a bulge, pinch some tufas, dream of Spain, head left and up to the shuts. A crag highlight for sure!
Bolted on the tight side of necessity to avoid a fall into the tree. A great lead for those looking to break into the grade.
Start out of the bay tree at the base. Right of Silverado Squatters and left of Beast of Burden.
7 bolts and an anchor on top.

First Ascent was by Jeff Follett, in 1995.

Beware of the tree. Took a fall on July 12, just before 3rd bolt and swung against it on the way down. One of the branches had recently been pruned, leaving behind a sharp edge. The result was 27 undesired stitches on my thigh and three weeks of no climbing.

This is a great route! Fun moves on cool, big holds. This is the type of climb that I'll never get sick of, and look forward to doing many more times.
