Description 

Start with a short, steep and unprotected sequence at 5.8+ up to a lower-angled but still difficult slab. Climb the slab to easier ground above until you come to some loose-looking blocks under a steep light-colored face. Climb the short face (crux) to a small pine tree.

Location 

At a steep face, ~10' left of the bulge of Grease Gun Groove.

Protection 

Crux is very well protected. The easier climbing at the start is unprotected at about 5.8.
The pine tree at the end has rap slings with rings.

a nice one-move-wonder bouldery crux with fantastic gear at your chest. The unprotectable 5.8 start earns this a PG13. Great climb for those looking to tick a 5.10+ trad lead.

I have followed this climb twice in the last two weeks. It's a hard start for a short person (5'2"), but totally doable. I probably do the crux differently too. One move wonder...fun climb. Worth doing.
