Most of Treebeard, lower 6 feet missing.


Crux is pulling over the top. Solid but thin in places, gear may be a problem, I soloed it. There is a tree branch that is a little in the way at the start, hence the name.


About 1.5 miles west of the Beige Siphon Tube across the river on a north-facing slope in a gully. Park at the paved pullout where the diversion dam is. 75 yards from the road. Walk off.


Short screws or rock gear off to the left. A nice solo.

This was pretty solid on 2-9-7, it is in the shade all day long so it may last a bit longer than the rest. If any did it prior to the date, give me a name and fa info and I'll change it. Didn't see any signs of any previous attempts.
