Pitch One: Climb the flake and face trending R. to a belay ledge. Variation to Pitch One: (Recommended) Climb the Left facing corner/crack with tree growing out of it to ledge and belay. 50'
FYI: Don't blink when you get to the top of pitch one and look left on the ledge to see the awesome crack of pitch two
Pitch Two: Climb the splitter hand/layback crack 30' to ledge then scramble up blocky ledges trending leftwards towards a giant ledge. 80'
Pitch Three: Join Chimney Variation, or other possible routes to the top.
Pitch's can be combined in different order or linked together to your liking.
Right side of the cliff find the large tree growing out of the crack. The original start is 20' right of variation start.

The 5.8 layback/corner variation (with tree growing out of it) is stout.

Very fun trad route, probably overlooked but especially fun as one longer pitch using the first pitch variation(left-facing 5.8 corner)combined with the upper crack. Struggling past the cedar tree (but it's good pro!)at the bottom detracts but there's a lot of well protected good climbing on the other sections. Plenty of decent climbing at Hurricane besides just Quadrophenia.
