    Pitch 1: Climb the original, mostly unused, first pitch corner of Refuse.

    Pitch 2: Find the stump of the Refuse tree. Make a traverse left across a face underneath an overhang/roof to the Travesty belay. (5.9+)

    Pitch 3: Layback the flakes on the second pitch of Travesty to the tree ledge. (5.8)

Gear: standard rack
Descent: Continue to the top as desired or rappel with 2 ropes form the ledge.
History:  September 1993 - Uwe Schneider, Peter Hovling
