From 20' below the base of Tree Route. 5.5 sectio...
Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route. First 5.5 pitch ends at a tree a little less than half way up the route. Second 5.5 pitch ends at a 2-bolt anchor. A good route for new leaders.
Rappel the route with two ropes, or possibly do a 3rd class walk off. It is also possible to scramble/climb (exposed) left then down to the anchor for Nike route to rappel.
Route farthest right on Elk Slabs, other than the 5.5X solo route called 'Right Face'. Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route.
Assortment of trad gear. Camalot #4 and smaller.
Climber at first pitch's 5.5 section.
5.5 crux on second pitch.

This was actually a fun little route. I know many people do Great Expectations for beginning lead practice but IMHO this is slightly easier, the moves and gear placements are more varied and you can legit two pitch this route.
