Not to be missed! 10 Ft. right of Dead Tree Route. Crux is the first 15 feet- a thin tips crack with tricky smears for the feet on left and toe scum in crack opening on the right. Stab for jug above. Excellent pro abounds. Then follow very interesting crack and edges line to top. There is a second and mid way crux when making move from large flake on left up to cool mantle ledge. Upper moves are stellar as well and the whole thing is OK protected... there are a few spots one has to go a body length without protection.


Right side of Dead Tree Wall.


One fixed pin towards top of the route. Small to medium wires, small three cams, Ball nuts.

A British phone booth capable of going backward or forward in time?
And from what I have seen capable of geting the user in all sorts of trouble. With Daleks? Exterminate! Dec 5, 2006

Perhaps the crack is larger on the inside than it is on the outside? Dec 6, 2006

Good variation to Tardis starts about 8 feet right of the finger crack and bypasses the crux at about 5.9 Jul 9, 2009

This was a tough one! I sailed the bottom thinking the rest was "5.9". I was right, I was left, I was sketched out over a #000 C3, it was slightly epic. I think more like 5.10 climbing the whole way.

I placed a #2 Ballnut left of the fixed pin to back it up.

Did you guys go straight up the crack system? I zig-zaged all over the face. Sep 3, 2010

I went straight up from the beginning crack utilizing the big bulge with my left hand and going for the ledge. From the pin I went diagonally up and left to the top. I had a similar experience as I attempted this climb ground up. I pulled the bottom crux and thought I was done only to fall at the second crux getting to the ledge. There is awesome feeling of exposure on this climb as you finish up above the pin. Sep 4, 2010

had a hard time pulling the 10b crux off the deck, so i led the 5.9 varition which starts 10' to the right and links back to tardis after about 12'. The route is somewhat spicy from start to finish, a good lead. Jun 8, 2011
