DescriptionThis route is aptly named since you use "The Tree" to get established on the wall. An obvious stand start exists for those willing to pull on the painful pockets and risk a tree enema.
After Stick-clipping the first bolt, climb up to stand on the tree, stacking ropebags as required (or save the tree and just winch) to get up to the decent right hand starting hold. Establish on the wall and make a series of hard moves to get to a stance a the second bolt. Continue up on "traddy" insecure moves to good holds at the break above and step left around the arete for a good rest. Continue up past one more difficult section to the anchor.
Would be three stars if not for the tree start.
