Find the tree close to the cliff with a key embedded in the trunk near eye level, on the cliffside of the tree. The keyring has broken off of the key (and it is sometimes replaced) so you may need to look hard for it.
The route ascends a dark brown slab starting from the tree. Climb the lower slab to the blocky 4th class ledge, then climb the outside corner hanging overhead. The route touches both faces of the outside corner. A routefinding extravaganza!
Find the tree with the key in it. About 100 yards from Cake Walk, before you reach the big dirty ledge where Old Crow and High Steppin start.
Can be done with only bolts. If 5.7 is your limit, bring a couple cams for the slightly runout section midway up the climb (it's not that runout, but some will want an extra piece of pro)

I know a lot of Rumney climbers who would be able to handle that runout.

Edited. Sorry: didn't mean to be offensive! Was supposed to be amusing.

This route is no harder than 5.5.

I thought this route was actually pretty fun especially for a warm up. Watch out for the loose stuff on the big ledge.
