I thought this was an excellent route. Reading other people's routes makes me wonder (genuinely)if people are doing differenbt versions of the route. I stood on the tree'ledge' and then moved up left in the crack/flake line, without climbing up the tree as such, and thought it was a really good sequence, and not easy (VS4c and not easy at that). If people have actually been tree-climbing to avoid doing that sequence, then they've missed out on some really good climbing as well as damaging the tree.

Good, but not 2 stars, tree is not far off dead, and there is a step made by climbers part way up the tree.

backed of move from tree onto rock - looked very thin, and did not trust the hollow upper tree trunk to take a fall - its alive but now virtually just a shell of bark and about an inch of wood. carmen belayed patiently but declined the offer of a turn on the top rope

Tree looks like it's getting damaged from all the climbing so I recommend avoiding it. Definitely not two stars in my opinion. More like a bag of ...
