Description Suggest change

Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route. First 5.5 pitch ends at a dead tree a little less than half way up the route. Second 5.5 pitch ends at a 2-bolt anchor. A good route for new leaders.


Use an 80m or two ropes and rap from Tree Routes anchor.


Walk left and rap from Nike’s anchors and quickly traverse climbers left to Great Expectations anchor by a small tree. Rap again from here. Use a 70m rope or a few feet of downclimbing will be required.

Knot your rope ends but take care for rope eating cracks!

Location Suggest change

Route farthest right on Elk Slabs, other than the 5.5X solo route called 'Right Face'. Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route.
