  • Description 

    This route is a thin crack/seam that ascends the far left side of the Peapod Buttress (up and left from the main wall on Bitty Buttress). There isn't an overabundance of gear available and what you do get is small. The climbing itself is kind of balancy but not too tricky for the grade.

    If you fell from high on the route, you'd probably get tangled up in some tree branches (hence the name of the route).


    Location 

    This route is located on the far left of the "Peapod Buttress". This route is just to the left of a bolted line that is itself left of all the crack climbs on this buttress. The easiest way off is to do some easy downclimbing to climber's left.


    Protection 

    The smaller the better (RPs, black Alien, purple TCU, ball nuts, etc). There's a fixed head (!) at one of the cruxes. There's a spot for a perfect 0.75 Camalot but you might have to work for much of the gear.
