Comments: Jeremy Jones is the shit. Those Jones boys are doing descents in the Himalaya now.

Big mountain skiers intentionally do spines like these all the time.

Comments: I thought I had average size hands/fingers for a dude but that upper finger crack was like off-fingers for me. I was finger stacking and had problems staying in.

Comments: Really good hand jams except for the weird pod. The whole climb protects well in the hand size but you can use a #3/#4 in the pod to protect and step left onto a shelf outside of it. Getting back into the hand crack above wasn't hard for me (I'm 5' 11'') but it was very difficult for my partner (she is 5' 2''). The whole climb is short sustained 5.10b sections with good rests in between all the way up. This is obvious from the ground.

Comments: Yup, crux is the first 25 feet. If you got the huevos just run it out and cruz right up to a nice ledge rest stop to plug in pro. After that the route is cake. Just don't strain too much pulling that lay-back and end up farting on your belayer like I did.

Comments: Fun climbing because of the variation. More so than Lean and Mean IMO which is more just friction climbing.

Comments: The roof looks intimidating from the ground but it is actually quite easy. Go for it!

Comments: Bring small-medium stoppers to protect the middle crux section. I didn't cuz I was dumb enough to think it would take micro cams just fine.......wrong! I had to run that shit out and was wishing I brought the stoppers. It is sustained which makes the 5.9 rating more of a 5.9+ (whatever that is) or 5.10a.

Comments: No need for any big gear to the bolted anchor. The upper "finger crack" wasn't much of a finger crack for me. Too small to get my fingers in. More like a seem that takes small-medium stoppers for pro.

Comments: I found the wyde section just below this guys foot to be the crux. Definitely requires some off-width technique. It can also take pro bigger than 2.5".

Comments: Pro Tip! - after you exit the funkiness and get onto the slab where the anchor is, back clean your last piece in the crack (that is if you didn't be a hardman and run it out). When you walk to the anchor the rope will push that piece deep into the crack and you won't get it back. There are Booty Pirates a plenty out there just waiting for you to do this so they can booty your goods!

This climb is fun with quite a variety of technique for a short pitch.

Comments: Nicely played Peter. Man up to your humility.

The start requires some muscle to pull through. Then I seemed to find "good enough" rest spots throughout until the end. The last 10 feet or so to the anchors are definitely the crux. Here the rock felt quite "slippery".
