Description Suggest change

This route is the right-most route on the Northwest face of Blair I. Take the Blair trail and cut in between Blair III from the west through a nice aspen grove. Follow the wall until the obvious hand crack comes into view.

Pitch 1 might be the best moderate hand crack (5.6) in all of Vedauwoo. Follow perfect hands to the shelf and belay at a 2 bolt anchor with rap rings (per Mike Lewis).

Pitch 2 has a move or two of 5.9 upon entering the crack over a wild rasberry bush. Follow the pleasant crack with the little tree (hence the name) to the top and belay at a 2 bolt anchor with rap rings (per Mike Lewis). .

The descent involves either downclimbing a chimney or rapping from anchors across the top of the chimney.

Protection Suggest change

Bring a standard rack with an emphasis on hand-sized gear.

Per Mike Lewis: there are bolted anchors are at the top of each pitch.
