Description 

Treefrog is the slab just above and rightof the two cracks and very bottom cliffs. The crux is right near the fist bolt, The best climbing is near the top.

Location 

By using the trail to the first cliffs follow the trail to the left of Sleeping Princess. Head Right past the anchors for Sleeping Princess and drop down to the base of the route. To hike to the anchors follow the markers above Sleeping Princess (left of the route) it will take you to a fixed rope, climb the rope and traverse right and you will have to hike down to the edge of Treefrog, the chain is around the tree at the top of the climb.

Protection 

The are four bolts and two or three cam placements protecting this route, one bolt comes quickly, the next after a 12ft run up some very easy slab, place a cam behind a block then the third bolt after a haul up a ledge on a steep section and the fourth bolt right after the third. The last 15 feet of the route is protected by a medium sized cam. There is a chain around the tree at the top of the climb from which a toprope can be set up.

Heads up - the tree at the top with the anchor chain is dead. It's pretty solid for now but it won't last forever.
There is now a two bolt anchor with rap chain about 10 feet right of the tree, on the ledge. It's still worthwhile to clip the chain around the tree as a directional for the second if belaying or lowering off the anchor.
