Description

You probably won't actually hug it, but the tree at the base forms a natural ladder that is the start of this fun route.

Look for a tree growing right into the cliff and use the "steps" to move up on and onto the face. Casual climbing past closely-spaced bolts leads up and left to the top.

Location

Starts at a tree, just right of Footloose.

Protection

6-8 bolts; bolted anchors shared with Footloose.

Super casual climbing after an awkward start up and around a small tree that's grown into the crag. A solid 5.7, recommended for novice sport leaders. Apr 27, 2016
You can pull an easy boulder problem instead of using the tree. It makes the route go at 5.8+. Apr 16, 2016

Agree with Kit but the first couple of bolts provide some fun movement on alright holds. Contrived finish, either topping way left or running out straight up. I get on this nearly every L.L outing. Aug 23, 2012

Scaling this cool looking tree is only 'hard' part. Oct 26, 2009
