JW leads the wonderful "Tardis"
Not to be missed! 10 Ft. right of Dead Tree Route. Crux is the first 15 feet- a thin tips crack with tricky smears for the feet on left and toe scum in crack opening on the right. Stab for jug above. Excellent pro abounds. Then follow very interesting crack and edges line to top. There is a second and mid way crux when making move from large flake on left up to cool mantle ledge. Upper moves are stellar as well and the whole thing is OK protected... there are a few spots one has to go a body length without protection.
Right side of Dead Tree Wall.
One fixed pin towards top of the route. Small to medium wires, small three cams, Ball nuts.
Jerry Tops out on Tardis. Check that zig zag out!
Jon pulling the top moves on Tardis. Just plain w...
Vince, finishing it up.

A British phone booth capable of going backward or forward in time?
And from what I have seen capable of geting the user in all sorts of trouble. With Daleks? Exterminate!

Perhaps the crack is larger on the inside than it is on the outside?

I have climbed at the lake a lot and thought I ticked all the 5.10 leadable routes, What and where is dead tree crack and where is tardis? Are these the correct names? Help me James or Jay did I ever climb this route.

Mattso, (or should I call you Marmatt?), I don't think you ever did this route. By all accounts, Dead Tree Wall is way, way off the beaten path. I've never done it, though I think I should have.

Jay, Dead Tree Wall is right off the West Bluff Trail just north of Lost Face. Next time you come out to WI, we will have to get you on this climb. It was really good climbing.

Good variation to Tardis starts about 8 feet right of the finger crack and bypasses the crux at about 5.9

rating: 5.10b/c PG13
This was a tough one! I sailed the bottom thinking the rest was "5.9". I was right, I was left, I was sketched out over a #000 C3, it was slightly epic. I think more like 5.10 climbing the whole way.
I placed a #2 Ballnut left of the fixed pin to back it up.
Did you guys go straight up the crack system? I zig-zaged all over the face.

I went straight up from the beginning crack utilizing the big bulge with my left hand and going for the ledge. From the pin I went diagonally up and left to the top. I had a similar experience as I attempted this climb ground up. I pulled the bottom crux and thought I was done only to fall at the second crux getting to the ledge. There is awesome feeling of exposure on this climb as you finish up above the pin.

had a hard time pulling the 10b crux off the deck, so i led the 5.9 varition which starts 10' to the right and links back to tardis after about 12'. The route is somewhat spicy from start to finish, a good lead.
