Several variations in the 5.10-5.11 range exist for this route. If you take a line left of the bolts then the route is thinner and more sustained (especially the bouldery finish on the orange rock). To the right of the bolts is the path of least resistance, but it may get wet in the rain. Pick your poison, or better yet... your passion.

This route is cool. The flake never really turned into a handcrack in my opinion. There is a horizontal that takes a bomber hand size piece after the flake ends though.

Rock quality is not the best, but this is definitely worth doing.

No more treetop, but terrifying if you haven't saved a little for the last moves.

Real fun route! Holds are surprisingly solid. Worth doing if you have done all the other mixed climbs at the crag.

Hard moves are protected by bolts. Fun climb
