Description

Carefully start the route where the wood spirit cedar tree is located. Climb the funky short corner, then up bulges and ledges working to the right. From a stance on a ledge climb the face via side pulls and crimps up right to a seam/thin crack. Continue up the steep face on horizontals to the anchors.

Location

Start at the Wood Spirit cedar tree. Be mindful of the tree!

Protection

Trad. Anchors.

"un-friggin-believable, this fool"!!! No Kidding! Huge thanks for intervening Mike. There is no telling how far he would have gone if you hadn't said something. As you probably know, that tree creature is The Wood Spirit, which Jeff Achey and I named the route after; the tree is the actual namesake of the route! It's only been there who knows how many hundred years, preserved under the overhang. Some time ago, a similar jack-ass, i guess also trying to "improve" things, cut off one of the Wood Spirit's antlers on top of his head, as can be seen from the flat spot on top of his head. WTF?? Anyone that has any business on the route can climb the tree without needing to modify it or be worried about falling onto it. It is the freaking Wood Spirit, a thing to be respected, not hacked or carved on. Thanks again Mike for stepping up. Oct 23, 2011

We were on the nearby Killer Diller this weekend and we began hearing someone hacking at the tree at the base of this route (couldn’t see it from where we were). After yelling at the dude to stop, we walked over to check out the damage. He had only managed to break a chunk off one of the limbs, so it could have been worse, but un-friggin-believable, this fool. It was his first time climbing outdoors, and he considered the tree “dangerous” (even though they weren’t climbing that route). I explained as calmly as I could why he should leave the tree alone, but my hands were shaking I was so pissed. Karma's gonna be a bitch for that move, guy. Feb 17, 2011
