4. 40 ft. Climb to notch in overhang and surmount. Traverse right, scared shitless, to large pine.
5. 30 ft. Climb from pine tree to top."
Now, I would not describe the tree in the middle of the business on MT as "large". So I suppose it was then so small as to not even rate mention, and one was simply to "traverse right, scared shitless" past where the obvious tree is now)
Through the final hangs and traverses, two trees are mentioned in Blue Dick. In Gray Dick's MT description only the larger tree (post crux) way off to the right is described and also visible in the guide photos. The smaller tree in question is mentioned only in regards to the start of the Exit Stage Left variation. Dick has wisely left that tree out of the description for the regular MT.
I suppose if people intially "hand" traverse too far right they run into Variation 2 at 10a and not the listed 5.8+?
