Description:

Starts with the first pitch of T Trip, this climb is used to access other wall routes, including Atlantic Ocean Wall. After the first aid pitch it is easy free climbing and then a little 5.8/5.9 as you approach the tree. Fixed anchors get you back to the ground. A fun 3-4 pitch excursion.

5 out of 5 stars Thorn in my side.

Climbed route on a whim. Super fun! Didn't realize that I was climbing with my new next door neighbor. My partner was a friend of a friend, upon arriving at the tree at sunset, we talked and found out we live next door to each other!

George did the aiding then as we had a late start, Hope sent me to blast all the free climbing to the tree. We had a great time and got down before dark, but we had to gear shuffle with headlamps. Fun fun.
