There is a tree with old rap rings at the far right side (end) of the dike, but it does no good if you want to top rope this climb, as the swing would be more than 50-60 ft.
About 60-70 per cent of the dike (including all of the 5.6 moves) can be reasonably TR-ed from a tree on the far climber's right (hiker's left) of the "tree island". Climb the easy slab to the anchor, leaving the dike about 20+/- feet after the crux moves on the dike. (Don't worry, you'll recognize the crux moves !)
Best TR-ed with two ropes which allows one to land on ledges 140 +/- ft below, it is possible to TR it with a single 70m rope, but requires belaying from a 4 inch diameter birch tree, "backed up" with a 2" diameter maple tree 3 ft above! When rapping, BE SURE TO TIE KNOTS IN THE END.
