Comments: Hi Dustin. Thanks for the correction. I ran out of time this morning and just dashed out a rough draft of the description. I was planning on finishing later today when I had time. Cool route. Any backstory on the name?

Comments: Very sharp upper crux involves a finger crack with razor edges. Recommend taping left pointer finger below first knuckle. Otherwise awesome route.

Also, beware of the fixed draws. Not sure how long they have been there but they are sun damaged and a bit frayed. Inspect before trusting them.

Comments: Beware of the huge, chalked up block above the second bolt. It's very hollow sounding, got a crack almost all the way around it and vibrates when you hit it. Just a matter of time before this thing comes off.

Comments: Beware of the large block around the second bolt. It's hollow sounding. Tread lightly.

Comments: Got lost trying to find the underworld. Could anyone provide detailed approach instructions? We parked a Conley Cove and hiked for an hour on the Rock Jock Trail. The only pink marker we saw was about 5 minutes into the hike where Conley Cove Trail intersected with the Rock Jock Trail. Are the markers still up? What milage do you park at for shortcut approach? Landmarks? Assume I know nothing about the names of canyons, trails, etc. Would really like to find this place. Thanks!

Comments: Watch out for loose rock in the black band at mid-height. Otherwise, a fun route with a slightly contrived finish. Thanks for putting this up!

Comments: I am 5'8" with a +1" reach and was able to keep my feet on the wall when I did the lateral move. It is a huge move, but you don't need to be 6' tall to do this one. Intense little route!

Comments: 5.11 to a hard V6 with some big reaches, small edges and a tough last clip. Much harder than Cornerstone.

Comments: Maybe I missed some holds of did it wrong? I fell on this, and had to figure it out. Personally, this felt much harder than 5.10.

This route is located on right flank of the Drive-By crag on the way to Bob Marley. Walk past the Drive-By Crag towards the huge amphitheater, down the hill, and then walk right following an obvious trail until you see some routes. Sojourner Truth is about 5 minutes hike from the first routes you see while hiking up the hill out of the Drive-By cave.

Comments: V8 on a rope. Delicate moves on small, rounded edges, some hard lateral moves, and a couple of big lockoffs. 4 star rock and movement. Just too short to get more than 2 stars. Clips are not too hard once you figure them out. Very conditions dependent.
