Description 

Moderate face between the route "Dyspepsia" on the left and "Brother Without a Brain" on the right. Climb the easy lower corner of the route "Moderation" but move up and left to the top of the blocks and flake on the left. Climb off the upper most flake onto the face and follow steep slab face on edges and flakes directly to the lone pine tree at the top.

Protection 

This is a sketchy lead for gear but does have just barely adequite pro provided you have small stoppers and ball nuts. There is finger size cam placement at you knees on the right at the starting moves off the flake. You will get a small Ballnut placement above this. Next is a small stopper in good fairly deep slot. Above that are a sketchy small TCU placement in shallow horizontal and a small shallow stopper placement. Next is a nice deep large Ballnut at the crux move and small downward placed TCU behind a shallow flake to finish off the hard stuff. Great sketchy lead for the adventurous.

This is the best of the routes that start in the gully.
