Comments: Excellent route with solid rock on all the hard moves, be carefull pulling onto the ledge at half way. sure to be popular. I'm only 5'8" and didn't have any problem with the lower crux.

Comments: Fun with positive edges. The suspect hollow side pull before the third bolt can be avoided by using the rock solid flake directly under.
I would give it 3 stars if it was longer.

Comments: A great climb, much steeper than it first appears. Strenuous, 10+ would be a more appropriate grade,

Comments: A JT classic, great protection where you need it. This route has it all , exposure and solid edges. I would bring a 4' runner next time for the #2 and 3 cam to avoid rope drag at the top. I slung all my remaining gear onto a 2' sling and still fought the drag topping out. A 1.5/2/3 cam will give you lots of options at the break.

Comments: I agree 10b/c. Slopers , good footwork required. Well bolted but still feels heady due to the insecure climbing on slabby holds.

Comments: The start footholds are super polished, easily 10+ start, i've climbed more positive 11 routes, but It may be height dependant for me at 5'8". Balancy heady moves up higher, a high gravity day for me with a few falls, no on sight.
3 stars out of 4.
