BETA PHOTO: Follow a leftward trending ramp to the tree - easy...
Actually rated 5.2+ Follow the easy ramp up 60 feet to a large fir tree near the trail. Surprisingly solid rock was found after digging through 6" of dirt on a ground-up first ascent. Many thanks to Wes Reed and Jim Opdycke for cleaning this route and doing the first clean ascent after I fell in a dirt slide on the FA (also thanks to Jim for catching me and being wise enough to anchor himself to the log at the base). A great spot for children to learn; the 2nd ascent was followed by Wes's 4 year old daughter.
Belay from a downed tree at the base just to the west of the west trail. The ramp leads up and left from here.
Standard rack to 3"
