This is a steep, strenuous face route with some rounded holds. We found it necessary to use a foothold on the pinyon tree at the base of the climb to get started.


This is near the right end of the Cirque of the Climbables, and is shown on a photo in the 1992 Vogel guide. It follows a rounded arete at the right end of one part of the formation.


3 bolts and some gear

We also did the start without the tree. I'm glad to hear it's the "easiest 10c in the park!" Maybe it was all the snow on the approach? I've been checking the archive notes and it says "snow covered." Apr 19, 2015

Easiest .10c tick in the park. A short overhanging jug-haul with easier jug-hauling above. The obvious 8' tall "Christmas tree" marks the start. Dec 15, 2014
