Not sure if I was on this rout or not, but it was an obtuse dihedral about 250 ft left of good tang and definitely involved climbing behind a tree. But there was no 50 ft traverse, just a nice clean crack all the way to the top out. A few choice trees to set up an anchor. Pretty cool climb though

Not sure if I did this route either. We started on a route that sounds similar to this about 400 hundred feet climbers right of Dicey at Best. It began with a roof at the base, which you can bypass through easy and sandy face climbing, and went through one overhang, which is obvious from the ground, to a belay ledge. One more pitch with an overhanging section took us to an alcove with lots of webbing slung around a boulder. We didn't do a traverse. First two pitches are super chossy and has more sand on it than a Florida beach. I wouldn't recommend it.
