Description

The Tree Tower area is hardly used by climbers or hikers.Lots of moderate climbs.The tree tower wall has 50-70 foot routes, while the tower has 40-60 foot routes.WEAR YOUR HELMET! Bunch of loose rock on both the tower and the access.Even though its part of the summit band, its very shady.

Getting There

From the north shore west bluff trailhead go up the path almost to the top, look for a small boulderfield on the left.The tower is 200 feet north of the boulderfield.Access down is a steep gully off the west bluff trail.
