Small to medium. Beginning has a move or two pulling over a large overlap before you can get in your first piece.

The tree is gone since April 2011. I know because when it fell, I was directly below it. It was a wild and wooly ride to the deck. Lesson learned: Assume everything is loose in Spring until proven otherwise.

Note: The belay stance is on a slope of slippery debris. If you anchor to a tree, you're safer from falling down the hill but less able to dodge anything that falls (the shape of the climb channels rocks toward the belayer). Pick your poison.
