Watch Out For That Tree 12b
FA: Vaino Kodas, Bryan Pletta, 2005
This route is just around to the left from Lonesome Dove. Angle up right across a broken face to an overlap. Difficult moves after the overlap lead to sustained climbing to the anchors. Have an alert belayer so you do not hit the tree if you fall. A challenging pitch. 8 bolts.

This route is just right of Blonde Ambition. Start just left of the Pizza Slab and climb up into a right facing corner. Follow this corner until you can exit left near the top to gain a brown face. Near the last two bolts avoid the small cactus and lesser quality rock on the right. The finishing anchor is just right of the anchor for Blonde Ambition. 7 bolts
