While this climb is not very difficult, the hardest part is going up the parallel cracks just below the tree. The protection is good here and the climbing is enjoyable. You can belay here, at the tree, if you wish to do the climb in two pitches. You start the climb in either of the two cracks which start near the bottom. I took the lower crack, but the upper crack looks enjoyable too. From the tree, the climb continues up rock that is easier to climb than the rock below. You belay from one of many trees at the top.


This is the furthest right (west) route at the crag. A tree can be seen about halfway up growing out of the rock. Two crack/ledges angle up from right to left near the ground. These lead to a parallel crack system that goes up to the tree. You walk off to the left (east) after you are finished.


Standard rack to a #3 Camalot. I used a #4, but it is not necessary.
