Nice Steep 50 to 60 Ft. wall with good routes to be found just to the north of Reclining Tower area as one walks north along the West Bluff Trail. The top of Dead Tree Wall is very close to to the trail. Wall doesn't really see any more or less shade or sunshine then most other West Bluff Crags. There is a prominent central crack line called....you guessed it- "Dead Tree Climb".

Getting There 

Easy 3rd class gully just south of the wall. Don't go directly down the section of the gully that lies closets to the West Bluff Trail but ease down a tad bit further from the trail. You will find it easier. Just follow the slope down along the ever growing wall to the base after negotiating the gully.

Not to be missed! 10 Ft. right of Dead Tree Route. Crux is the first 15 feet- a thin tips crack with tricky smears for the feet on left and toe scum in crack opening on the right. Stab for jug above. Excellent pro abounds. Then follow very interesting crack and edges line to top. There is a second and mid way crux when making move from large flake on left up to cool mantle ledge. Upper moves are stellar as well and the whole thing is OK protected... there are a few spots one has to go a bo...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
