Comments: There was never a bolt on this route. My '79 Wolfe guide and '92 Vogel guide specifically mention the unprotected face above the crack. There is a 5.4ish move a ways above the top of the crack, but there are plenty of worse runouts to be found on other routes here in JT.

Comments: A fun route with great movement. One small problem - the third bolt is positioned so that the rope end biner of the draw lays right on a foothold.

For me the trick was convincing myself that I wasn't going to pry off the big blob of rock at the top right into my face!

Comments: Though it's pretty short, I can't think of a better sport climb at this grade in JT.

Comments: Nice to have a few new routes at New Jack. These routes are still shedding some holds for now, but should clean up nicely in time. My Bloody Valentine was our group's favorite, though we thought 5.9 was a more accurate rating.

Comments: After checking on this, I am relieved to report that there is indeed no third bolt on this route.

Comments: This is the original line of Fun Stuff, as shown in previous guidebooks (Wolfe, Vogel, and Bartlett guides). Most folks these days use the start to the left, making use of the bolt placed when Fun With a Gun was put up.
