Description [Suggest Change]
The Stretcher starts about 10 feet right of Birch Tree Crack. First 10 feet is easy then it throws you the goods right away. From a large ledge about 10 feet up move left through a couple of difficult moves with not so good feet. Don't worry, there is a thank god hold just a few moves later. If you can finesse your way straight up, that's in the 10B range, otherwise follow the ledges right, then up. Remember, the pump clock is ticking, you better get movin'. A classic route that is harder for the short person. I'm 5'9" and a few of those holds have me pretty stretched out.

You can do this route off of a rope set up on Birch Tree crack.
