BETA PHOTO: Up A Tree
A "gimme" 5.5, it's a good way to get up on top of the pillar to set up the other routes on it. Sling tree limbs for anchor.
The pillar has 3 (three!) bolts WITHOUT rappel rings on top, and the bolts are well back from the edge. The top of the pillar is a 3' jump across a 40-50' drop, to get to the main rock to the left. You may end up rappelling from the tree, or counterweight rappelling. Thanks for the bolts, guys! -JSH
Start next to large boulder at base of tree on left side of pillar; go straight up small dihedral and trend left towards top to avoid the tree.
G-PG gear, some of it quite fiddly. Bring cams up to #2, and some hexes for the flake. The tree, of course, is off.
