5 out of a possible 5
Climbing Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / The Wabi Sabi Way (5.7)
Directions:  Walk left along the cliff and follow the alternate trail that takes you to the Geriatric Walls. Continue past that area until the trail kind of runs out and you are on a leafy slope. Look for a 150' slab with a horizontal tree trunk at the top. Near the bottom is a curvaceous Beech tree.
Description: Moderate friction climbing with reasonable leader-placed protection.
    Pitch 1: Climb the route to the horizontal tree. Step over the tree to another tree where you belay. Lower back onto the horizontal tree and relax while your second enjoys the climbing.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel the route
History:  April 2005 - George Hurley, Mike Kahn
