Route Info 

A very balancy and tricky route, with a very puzzly crux. Start as with Dunce's Corner, stem/layback up corner to small roof on the right, traverse right under roof to outer face, and climb face to the top.

You can use a tree and gear for an anchor, with enough static line (80+ feet); otherwise, an anchor might be problematic.

Not sure this is a PG13, closer to PG, G with C3s. I don't agree with the comments about the top anchor; Another C3, small nut and a tricam are all real bomber up there.

TR does require long static line and results in potential for big swing if you blow it while traversing under the roof. Fun climbing, though!
