This route climbs the sharp NW corner of the rock (closer to the trail). A large tree is within inches of the rock and provides you with a variety of protection possibilites as well as a ladder for downclimb.

If done treeless, the climb is 5.8, if using the tree for initial two moves the route is 5.5 (or T5 as Roach rates it).


Slings for tree branches.

Or you can boulder it with the comfort of a spotter right behind you the whole way up.

I dunno what grade it is without the tree, but the crux is avoiding the tree....
