A neglected classic with two fine and sustained pitches. High in the grade. Start at the healthy tree just right of the dead tree.
1) 6b, 21m. Move up to a bush then move leftwards to a peg and jammed wire. Gain the small corner above and then the slim groove up and right. Easier climbing leads to the belay.
2) 6b, 20m. Step left from the belay and pull through the bulge to a steep groove (left of the larger groove). Climb this past a hole (thread) and up to a break. Move right and up to a short corner and climb up and right to finish.
