Description 

Fantastic pitch! Nice exposure and handcrack high up on a bottomless arete. Good trad sections and bolts where you need em'. Start on Birch Tree corner and break right about 50' up at a line of 3 bolts on an awesome face. Follow this to a sweet crack and an awesome stemming finish!


Location 

Up and right of the wet brown face directly above the approach trail and on the way to the chockstone crack is a huge open left facing corner. This is birch tree corner. Start up it for 50' then break right above the big overhang.


Protection 

gear to hand sized. There's even a nice old pin on the lower section of birch tree to keep with tradition

super fun facing climbing with a little exposure, to boot, above the dirty Birch Tree corner. The crack above the line of 3 bolts was short and, to me, seemed more fingery than thin hands (one actual hand jam) with a lot of suspect flakes/chockstones within the crack and horizontal break at about 2/3 height.

Very fun route! Secure with good simple gear at the bottom and upper cracks, and a well bolted face traverse up high. Doesn't get enough love.

For gear I used, roughly in order: #3, #2, #0.75, some nuts, yellow mastercam
