36m. Start at the right edge of the Lumbar Puncture slab, and climb discontinuous cracks, more or less directly, to the right-hand end of the halfway ledge. Move up to the trees; then climb directly up the upper slab.

NOTE: the line of the route on the lower slab is less than obvious, and some recent ascentionists have strayed off line. This applies to the picture on here, in which the climber has gone too far left. The route goes very slightly left to a shallow hole, and up to a good little square-cut finger hold. From here, the 5c crux bears slightly RIGHT and then up to the RIGHT-hand end of the ledge. Following the crack up and left is part of My Own Trumpet.
