A broken buttress split by a wide central ledge and with the eponymous tree. It has some traditional crack climbs plus a couple of harder challenges including the bold Gom Jabbar. Guidebook page 327.

14m. Climb the tricky rib on the left-hand side of the bay, then balance right to the tree. Finish up the steep flaky crack.

Tree Climb
14m. A good sharp-edged crack leads to the tree. Continue up the steep crack, awkward to access, behind the woodwork.

Third Time Lucky
14m. A scruffy crack (or, better, the start of the previous climb) leads to a mini-Inverted V. The leftward exit is the crux.

Gom Jabbar
8m. The hanging arete is unprotected, fingery and hard. A sensible side-runner stops a ground fall but not hitting the ledge.
