Description 

This is a low angle obtuse dihedral with a good sized tree growing out of it up high. The start is an offwidth/chimney but the remainder of the crack is more of a handcrack.

Not a bad little beginner lead. Some might disagree, but it was one of my first trad leads and didn't scar me too bad.

Nice exposure at the top.

Location 

Walk right from the main corner of the cliff past quite a few wide crack until the trail crests a small rise. The route starts just before the trail drops steeply along the cliff.

There is a tree growing in the crack.

Protection 

Small to medium sized gear (up to #3 camalot)

There is a tree at the top to belay and rappel from.
