Directions:  About 200' to the left of Guide's Route and Wiesner's Dike, locate an 18" diameter beech tree two feet from the base of a steep face. Approximately 12' to the left of this tree, identify a vertical jam-crack that starts at wide finger width, and opens, gradually to wide hand width.
Description: The start is up a nice looking obvious finger and hand crac and the other climbing is varied. P1 is the same as Jagen Die Sieben. According to George Hurley the climbing is nice, however it has rarely been repeated.
    Pitch 1: Jam the hand-crack, or the flakes to the right, to reach a 4" maple, which grows from the crack. At this point the face angles back, and the crack widens. After another 15' of easy climbing you will be on the tree ledge. Traverse left about 30' and belay from a white Birch tree.

    Pitch 2: Follow some bolts up to a large tree

    Pitch 3: Traverse right to the base of an open flaring corner.

    Pitch 4: Climb the corner (crux) to an anchor.

Gear: standard rack with cams, wired nuts and tri-cams
Descent: Rappel from an anchor with 2 ropes
History:  April 10,1999 - George Hurley and Bob Wallstrom
