Julie the climbing after you pass the tree is really good! Easier than the crack system below but more exposed, along the right edge of the huge leaning block. Really nice.
And Junkie, I thought that upper pitch looked really neat, we should have done it.
There is a great crack in the top of the big block in which you could build a three cam anchor and in fact we ultimately did so. It's only 20 feet or so above the tree to the top of the big block. I agree the tree isn't so inspiring either. But I preferred it to the cable block. Like I said, we should have just climbed the next pitch.
