Start as for Star Trek.

P1: Same first pitch of Star Trek (5.2).
P2: Follow Star Trek's 2nd pitch around the bulge (5.5).
P3: Follow the obvious ramp up and right along the top of the steep wall below. Belay at the highest birch trees on the tree ledge (5.4; 110').
P4: Continue diagonally up and right to reach the huge tree ledge (5.3; 150').


Start as for Star Trek, up and right of Across the Universe, at the etched "ST."

Just a couple of slight clarifications: The "ST" is at the start of the 2nd pitch, (after the 5.2 pitch) and from the birch belay [end P3; but today there may be only bushes at the ledge, trees (and especially Birch trees) sort of "come-and-go" with avalanches on Willard] to the Big Tree Ledge is more like 300 ft of climbing (2 pitches) not 150 ft. However, you do get to a lower, smaller tree ledge in the "150 ft". Nov 11, 2015
