Comments: This climb absolutely eats gear, especially mid-sized nuts! Even though I found myself on the edge of my comfort zone a few times at the top, it was really reassuring to know that you can get bomber gear just about anywhere you want. So for someone looking looking to push it from 7s to 8s, this is great climb to tick off.

Comments: TinMan's got it right- I did this climb today and even though 6's are typically warm-ups for me, I found the runout after my first piece to be pretty intimidating.

Comments: This was my first 5.7 lead at J Tree and it served that purpose well. Very straightforwards, good rest spots, and great gear.

Comments: I definitely agree with the other two- really a fun route! You've got to think a lot, but once you figure it out, the actual moves are super solid. So mentally strenuous but not at all physically intimidating...and great gear to boot.
