Description

To find this route hike up past the Rincon Wall towards Cadillac Crag and head right and uphill about 500 yards past the Over The Hill dihedral area. Follow a loose gully up towards the summit of Rincon, if you stay left of the gully it is not so loose. Eventually you will come to a ledge system that cuts right, follow this to the base of the route which is topped by a strange Dr. Seuss-type tree which bends to the right.

Rossiter has drawn a great topo of the route and the tree that sits atop it in his Falcon Guide to Eldo, it is extremely helpful in locating the route which can be tricky to find.

Start with a right leaning crack that leads up to a small bush (10.a) and work past the bush (dirty and loose). Above the bush follow the obvious thin crack and shallow corner (10.c) to the top and belay.

To descend, rappel off a tree with slings near the top of the route.
