Description [Suggest Change]

High on the buttress stands a lone, wind-blown juniper. This is the Wind Tree.

This route climbs an obvious left-leaning crack system to the tree.

Third class up to a ledge, 40' off the ground.

Climb to a small ledge where two cracks form a prominent "V". Take the left to a belay ledge.

Climb a steep section, then follow an arch until a vegetated dihedral is almost reached. Move right on knobs to a crack. At it's top climb up and right to the tree.

Traverse right and head up cracks to the summit.
