Very cool looking holds that you just want to grab, especially that huge cobble at the top.
Start out on any of the knobs that you can reach, probably a shoulder height right hand on a small 1-2 finger and a high left foot. Climb up the knobs that all face left to the huge broken off black cobble at the top. You will encounter a bit of technical cranking and some thin feet.
Worth doing for sure but the right starting hold can open you up.
This problem climbs the knobby face 5 feet left of the down-climb off of the Glass House Boulder.
Pad and spotter to keep you off the rock about 4 feet behind the problem.

This problem used to be way easier till a big foot (knob) broke off. All that's left is a little divot.
Painful holds. Cool problem.
There are also 2 problems to the left of this in tiny friable/knobs/flakes that are probably the same grade more or less.
And to the fuck heads who fucked up the tree by the start of this problem...fuck you.
I look forward to seeing you out there and telling you this in person.

I saw the little divot, right where you would want your right foot to start.
Sharp is the truth, Dave opened his right thumb on the start hold after a handful of tries.

I think you should tell us how you really feel about the tree.

Yeah, and opened my left knee from popping off the big slopey foothold. Worst thing about it is I'll be back for more...
