Wild jug-hauling with just a couple of tricky moves. Get an attentive belay and watch out for the tree down low. A 2 bolt extension up the black streak above adds some length and vert crimping with no change in difficulty.

Fun climbing. Really didnt feel like the tree could come into play at all.

attentive belay required as suggested or you'll be Bakanova that tree

Very fun, well bolted, then an exciting run to the chains. I removed the fixed line that was littering the crag.

Such a good route. 12a feels more appropriate in my opinion, felt on par or harder than other RRG 12a pumpers.
