Another beautiful day... <br /> <br />Photo: Brandt Allen.  Jane's varies a lot in difficulty depending on height and body type. Chelsea Griffie and I did it one time, and there's no way she can make the reach. She did some heinous crimp-fest just left, then rocked up and traversed over to the big round hold under the roof. Pretty amazing. <br /> <br />But too tall and the reach is good but you can get bunched up getting onto the face. This climb fits me just right.  <br /> <br />Guy Keesee got the pic.  John Stark belaying. Me on point. Fun route gets your attention. <br /> <br />Photo by Rob Brown.  The cover shows one of many great aerial photo's taken from Dwight Kroll's plane. That ride was quite an experience!  Kern Valley Guide
