Description

Once an obscure rarely done route, the addition of bolts and chains increased its popularity astronomically. Despite having taken a beating from heavy traffic and gastronomically challenged birds in recent years, it's still worth a visit. A tricky start leads to easy climbing and a bouldery crux. Named after a tree that used to reside on the route but has since departed. If leading beware of ankle breakers at the start. The "direct start" is 11a/b.

When you're leading be cautious of the bottom section. Slipped unexpectedly and caught myself. Underwear check was in order. May 21, 2015
