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