DescriptionTree Corner gets its name from the fact that it climbs the obvious corner, past a large tree to the right of the chimney. It is a fun climb that protects well but feels harder than the listed grade. Id call the first pitch 5.9.
P1 - At the corner where the main wall curves toward an alcove, start in a crack and work out onto the face/arête. Continue up the face and work into the chimney on the right. Exit the chimney at its high point, continuing up the face to another crack that ends atop the pillar at a chain anchor, shared with Slot Machine. For added protection you can place a #2 Camelot in the crack before the first bolt, and another #2 in the upper crack. 8 bolts, 90
P2 From the anchor, transition left into a groove (the continuation of the slot that defines Slot Machine) that heads up to the right. Take the slanting crack up and left to the top of the wall, ending at chain anchors. This upper crack is flaring but can take pro in spots, but this pitch is easy and protected well enough by the bolts. 3 Bolts, 70 Either rappel in two pitches or drag a second rope to rappel all the way to the ground.
