This is a good summit route for crowded days. Link it up with Oozing Couth. It can be quite enjoyable.

we skipped the first pitch as it looked dirty and wet and did the bonzo's revenge traverse. the second pitch was a blast. short, but a lot of fun. the middle move was somewhat awkward as i had chimney and then mantle to this little ledge with iron. you can belay your partner right on the edge from the tree. there's a horizontal to place a smaller cam if you want some more backup. be careful if you want to do oozing couth. it's slippery and thorny.

Last 10 feet of hand crack would be awesome if there wasn't all the mud in it.
