DescriptionWide but not only 20-25 feet tall.
. . . (So the obvious strategy is to set up a static line (or two) for top-roping several lines closely spaced).
Mostly less-than-vertical face climbing with thoughtful moves.
. . . (Perhaps some other styles to the right of the "crazy" tree?)
Named for a tree with an extra trunk growing sideways out of the rock face.
Right side is adjacent to The Shelves sector of the Books Tier area).
Top-Rope: Lots of trees above the cliff might be useful as anchors for a static line. Top of cliff can be reached with easy scrambling up around its left side.
warning: The rock around this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
Getting ThereFrom the junction of Tower Wall tier trail and the Good Book access trail, go steep up NorthEast about 100 feet. At the top of the steep section, turn off Left and go NorthWest 200 ft roughly horizontal across the top of the Wichquawanck + Nechtanc. Next turn Right and go up NorthEast 50 ft perhaps with a little scrambling. A little left see the tree with an extra sideways trunk growing out out of the rock face - - > [ Photo ]
Another way is to go to the Good Book wall, then from the center of Good Book find a way downward left (west) about 150 ft to another smaller tier below.
. . (Crazy Tree is about 100 ft SouthEast below the Romance Novels crag).
