The climb is the face between the easily identifiable Push-Mi, Pull-Yu on its right and Agnostic on its left. The climb doesn't really start until you've reached the horizontal crack where the deep cleft on Agnostic ends. Once you reach the ledge above the blank face with the dead stump you've completed the route. To get there stay on the small face holds between the two cracks and enjoy.


The conclusion of this climb is at the ledge with the rotten stump and the pine tree. It can be set up top rope about 15 feet below the top ledge with medium wire stoppers and medium sized cams.
