Description

Start at the bottom of a big detached boulder that forms a left facing corner. Head up the corner and gain the top of the block. Move right and head to the next left facing corner. Use the face/corner to head straight up to the top.

The route name comes from the route being great for kids. If they have trouble gaining ground on rock - just hug the tree!

Location

Obvious left facing corner on the right side of the Basilisk wall.

Protection

Long static for top rope anchors

Yes you basically start on Testicular Trauma and then move on to treehugger. Great route Apr 27, 2015
There's a lot of dirt on this short route, but for now that seems common in this area (and one of the many reasons why I like it).

Did this route as written, but then found it a bit more fun by starting about 4-5 feet to the right of the detached boulder and it's left facing corner. Up over the front right of that boulder to gain the top of the block, then straight up the face staying about 1-2 feet left of the corner (and tree) to the top. Lots of good holds. Apr 27, 2015
