BETA PHOTO: START of Summer Breeze and the Upside-Down Tree 20...


This route is added more for its "landmark" inverted tree, than as a route, it is heavily lichened over. A couple of days of brushing might bring out a 1 or 2 star climb....but....

START- Below a "spruce/juniper" tree that is (and has been, for at least 30 years) growing nearly UPSIDE DOWN from a ledge about 20-25 ft up. (Photo)

P1- Climb the mossy/licheny ledges and slabs to the tree island on the right with a 3-4" diameter oak.

P2- To the top.... with much brushing.

DESCENT- From the end of P1, rap from the 3-4" oak to the ground with 2 ropes, or with a single rope to the belay/rap station of "Road to Lhasa" (2 bolts) then to the ground. From the end of P2 look for a rap tree on the right, either 2 ropes to the ground or a single 60m (but NOT a single 50m) to the "Road to Lhasa" belay/rap station.


About 30 ft right of the highest point of land in the Height-of-Land area.


Wire brush, broom and the usual rack.
