Again, this line was lead by Cliff Ellery with the idea that he was bagging
a first ascent, but it seems a line this good gets snatched up quick! A real
stunning route, though starting it can be a bit daunting as that the crux is just
getting off the ground! Start on the gradually widening, slightly overhung, hand
crack, pull up onto the big scoop/ ledge, then up through the short off width
(the pine tree is NOT eliminated from this climb, hence the name Cliff Ellery
gave it- "Tree Hugger"). DBC belay courtesy of Matt Natti.
