Birch Tree Dihedral is the inside corner just to the left of Old Shoes, which follows the nose of the buttress to the top. The bottom of Birch Tree Dihedral is slightly overgrown. The climb would merit a higher rating were it not for this overgrowth. To climb the route, use the crack in the corner and easy ledges to ascend. Near the top use layback moves or simply jam the crack. Either stop at the large ledge or climb to the top using the walls on either side.

The little birch tree has long since died.
