Description Suggest change

Birch Tree Crack is found just off the CCC trail on the southeast side of the Pedestal Buttress. Climb up on blocky terrain about 5 feet to access the crack. The crack starts out with you in a small alcove. Step up on a loose block and perform a tricky sequence to ascend the first section of the crack (the section with less features and lots of white chalk). Once above this crux continue on slightly easier terrain. Try to jam the crack instead of using the features on the face. It makes things more interesting.

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium stoppers or cams.
