Chimney between 2 columns to begin this climb- this is a little to the left of straight below the dead tree. There is an alternate start up parallel seams to the right of this chimney that is 5.10+. Angle up and right for a ways following steep hand cracks that are shared with Mr. Fosters Lead. Near the top, bust out left on pockets through slightly overhanging ground (crux) to the tree. The finish is somewhat contrived but fun, and on lead it is more logical to stay in the crack directly above and finish as for Mr. Fosters Lead.

Note that if you follow strictly the line shown in "Jemez Rock", you'll wind up on 5.12 terrain.


Look for the dead/dying tree on the ledge in the center of the Playground. Tree Climb follows the easiest route up to this.


1 set nuts, 1 set cams, up to #4 camalot. Tricams might be useful.
A 2-bolt anchor for Mr. Foster/Tree Climb is just right (climber's right) of the dead tree, which is no longer a safe anchor for this route.
