Description 

Start at the base of the square overhang and head up the middle underneath, then pull the great jug out left and gain the ledge shared by the little tree. The crux of the climb could be negotiating the tree without injury, hence the name of the route. Pass the tree and start up the finger crack behind and to the right using the crack and small face holds on the left with some bigger ones around the arete and to the right. There is a pretty big and solid block at the top that can be used to build an anchor. Descend via the "downclimb gully" to the left of the route.

Location 

Route starts about 10 feet to the right of the "downclimb gully" or about 10 feet left of "Jupiter" in the Dead On Arrival Area of the ridge. Look for a large square dihedral that has a small tree to the left about halfway up the wall.

Protection 

Small nuts and cams to finger size, a sling for the tree. Some long slings and bigger cams for the anchor at the top.
