You probably won't actually hug it, but the tree at the base forms a natural ladder that is the start of this fun route.
Look for a tree growing right into the cliff and use the "steps" to move up on and onto the face. Casual climbing past closely-spaced bolts leads up and left to the top.
Starts at a tree, just right of Footloose.
6-8 bolts; bolted anchors shared with Footloose.

Scaling this cool looking tree is only 'hard' part.

Agree with Kit but the first couple of bolts provide some fun movement on alright holds. Contrived finish, either topping way left or running out straight up. I get on this nearly every L.L outing.
