Carter getting a few moves off the ground.


This was the first route put up at the Paper Wall via spotting the obvious birch tree protruding from the crack.

Start by scrambling up to a ledge 2 meters above the base trail. It is wide and a good spot to belay from. Follow the crack to the top, turning the tree on the right as you ascend. Save some gear to make an anchor on top, or use the large tree back away from the cliff line to build your anchor. The easiest way down is to rappel the currently closed project line to the left via the rap bolts on top.


This line is found on the right side of the main area of the Paper Wall


Trad rack with extra wide gear. #4s and a #5 if I remember correctly were nice to have with.
