Description

Aim for the tree growing out of the cliff at the base of a left-leaning splitter. Traverse in from the left in a right-angling, intermittent, crack system. I vaguely remember the traversing start to be slightly dirty and a wee bit spicy, but the jamming in the upper crack is well worth the effort.

Location

Pretty much dead center on the North Face of the crag is a tree growing out of the base of a left-leaning crack. Start the pitch down and left where a weakness heads right toward the tree.

Walk / scramble down the Southeast corner of the crag.

Protection

Standard rack.

Correct, the right hand, right-facing dihedral start to Hanging Tree (the tree now dead) sucks. The 1st ascent (i.e.: Tim Hansen) led a scary, no pro start in from the left. An excellent, 3 star variation: Lynch Mob 5.10R (Nate A. 2012) begins 60 ft. left with a fingercrack under a large evergreen bush. Avoid the bush and monkeyhang traverse horizontally right some 60ft to the Hanging Tree. Oct 24, 2012

Great upper pitch, but the bottom crack and traverse to get to the thing was a 'black hole' pitch which sucked a star off of the over all experience. Start : easy 5.10, PG-13 or R. I cleaned it on lead and managed to get an RP in the vert section below the traverse.
The book makes it sound like this is no big deal, but it's the mental crux of the route. The upper section was well protected and not scarey! Jul 6, 2008
