Comments: FWIW, there were at least 5 waterfalls going that day. This one was the biggest and provided a cooling mist reminiscent of some waterfall in Hawaii! Now just think if they froze....

Comments: Actually, in the upper bit, it jumps to the left in the more acute dihedral, left of the one with the rope.

Comments: Yes, running a rope over any sling is very, very risky. Running a rope over a low melting point sling is even more so!

Comments: FWIW, I don't think we were ever left of the bolt line. It's just a slab move up high that you had to trust your left foot on for one move.

Comments: The one thing that helped with the mid-route roof is to think bigger moves from jug to jug, not the little movements of a slab climber. For the start, I tried from the right...unclean and sketchy feeling. Addendum: I did it again and hand cleaned it. Still loose holds, but it goes ~5.10 R. I didn't try traversing in from the left. That might make the start feel easier. We started below the 1st bolt.

Comments: Josh, I think you could carefully approach from the top of Jericho. It is a grassy, ledgy area; however, there is enough steepness to really hurt if you were not careful enough. It's probably a little less intimidating than getting to Joy of My World. Note, we rapped in, climbed back up, and then scrambled down to Jericho, so this is supposition. Still, to be safe, rap in, and climb off the top.

Comments: Sorry, we snapped off most of the hold just above the 1st bolt when barely pulling on it. It makes it a wee bit harder. This is harder for short folks or those who prefer slabs.
