This direct start to Cruisemaster allows you to avoid the vegetation overtaking that route's first two pitches, but requires some runout climbing. Start on the face to the left of the arete and tree, then climb up trending to the right. A #1 in a horizontal at about 10 feet will protect you part of the way to the next placement at about 25 feet. Wander around the arete to the right and find gear and sequences until you are at a ledge directly beneath the hanging belay of Cruisemaster. Traverse left along the ledge and then climb the arching crack that is the top part of Cruisemaster's second pitch until you reach the belay. Continue up the spectacular final pitch of Cruismaster to the top of the cliff. Rap from a tree or walk off to climber's left. The first pitch is probably only 5.10 R.
Moves: unknown
