  • Description 

    Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route. First 5.5 pitch ends at a tree a little less than half way up the route. Second 5.5 pitch ends at a 2-bolt anchor. A good route for new leaders.

    Rappel the route with two ropes, or possibly do a 3rd class walk off. It is also possible to scramble/climb (exposed) left then down to the anchor for Nike route to rappel.


    Location 

    Route farthest right on Elk Slabs, other than the 5.5X solo route called 'Right Face'. Tree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route.


    Protection 

    Assortment of trad gear. Camalot #4 and smaller.
