Start on a clean slab left of a large oak tree to a left facing corner. Traverse left across the lip of the roof to good holds and gear. Pull the headwall through a notch to a tree ledge. Continue up a featured slab to an overlap. Follow the flake/dike system to a tree anchor shared with the previous route.

The flake/dike system at the top of this route is definitely the highlight. Pretty fun climbing throughout though.
There is a hard to see new pin near the top of the lower slab. I suggest clipping it because the start of the traverse can be deceivingly slippery.
