Comments: Burly. Tape up for the crux and don't forget heel hooks, breathing (or you will get very winded) and all kinds of crazy body contortions.

Comments: I think the current grade is appropriate and the protection is adequate. My best recollections are from heady climbs like this that require focus and commitment. I still clearly recall the wonder at how unique the moves and gear were on this line during my ascent of this route shortly after is was established. Please leave that experience available for my kids in their future. We have plenty of generic sport climbs. I prefer keeping this route as it has been since the 1980's - a classic mixed ro... more >>

Comments: Fantastic solid 10c line not to be missed. Wear shoes that edge really well so you can stand on the tiny bumps and this will greatly assist you in the cruxes. Combination of thin edge/crimping and small finger crack cruxes all in the first 30-40 feet of the climb.

Comments: Fun and worthy pitch. Makes climbing Doggy style worth it to get up here for this pitch. A burly balancy start leads to many fun lay offs and thin moves with plenty of rests. Hope it gets a lot more traffic to clean it up. Bring a few cams for the very end - 1/2 to 1 inch will fit.

Comments: A bit loose in places so tread carefully. If you lower with a 60 meter rope - the belayer needs to hike up a bit onto the ramp. Better to just rappel - saves the rope and safer on this route.

Comments: Tricky exit moves figuring which way to go and not blowing the lead.

Comments: Great line, fun moves with and neat bit right up the arete itself. If you do this jump on pitch 2. The second pitch is barely much harder and the its crux had 3 bolts in 8 feet right off the belay.

Comments: A very nice second pitch to the route that should be done since it is one of the better pitches on the wall. A rare hard move that tops out in the 5.10 range, lots of rests, plenty of bolts - just fun climbing.

Comments: An easy warm up. Another one of those 5.8/10a sport climbs that abound in the gym and sometimes outside. Worth doing, but not 5.10.

Comments: Cryptic moves on steep slopers with some slippery feet on really solid rock. One of the best sport routes on this wall - definately worth doing.

Comments: Probably about 1987-88. Old rigid stem Friends and Sportiva Mariachar shoes. I was scanning in old slides and had to put a few of the good old day shots from my favorite winter playground on the web site.

Comments: Phenomenal face sequence - one of the best slad section I have done here. You can do this in 2 pitches with a 70 meter rope - Pitch 1 plus 2 are almost exactly 70 meters.

Comments: An absolutely stunning line reminicent of the hard pitch on Levitation or Dogma - just easier. Away from the crowds,in the shade, pulling perfect crimpers on a steep wall with the need for a little gear near the top. One of my favorite plated face pitches in the park. Pitch 1 will keep down the crowds due to a 50 foot 5.5 runout. Belay on top of the pillar just left of the line - sit down belay with great gear in the crack (any cam from 1 inch to 4 inches). You can then rap down to the top of La... more >>

Comments: Wow. Another great route by the Urioste family. After 25 years of climbing here I continue to find gems they have established. I was quite intimidated by the grade given to pitch 4 - 5.10d OW. I kept climbing and climbing and never found that part. The start of the pitch is 5.10 and takes a big piece (great gear so no fear) but a little foot work and side pulling for a few feet and that is done without ever using off width technique. Despite this route being labeled as a wide crack, there is al... more >>

Comments: The start moves are the crux - 9+/10a. Bold from there especially between bolt 2 & 3 where you would get hurt if you fell, and bolt 3 & 4 where its a bit runnout. Classic Little Cottonwood slab at a moderate grade - good warmup for the harder lines to work on slab technique, runouts and remaining calm.

Comments: A very sustained route. Sneaky gear at the start (I got a wire in the crack to the right at the roof and them moved into the route) but it sounds like perhaps a bit higher would have been easier?

Comments: I think this is my favorite 5.9 route in the entire park. I have probably climbed in 10 or more times and I live 12 hours drive away. Every route on this wall is fantastic but this is the best.

Comments: I found with modern small cams and brass that this is not R rated. Great gear but thoughtful to place. Don't forget to exit right.

Comments: This is a total circus trick hoot of a climb. I do it every time I visit Jtree for the novelty and to scare the hell out of whomever I am with. Once under the route looking up everyone I have taken refuses to lead it (the first time) even though the crux is in the first 10 feet (you can't see the hand rail so assume you will be offwidthing the roof). Anyone who has not done this route really needs to get on it - totally safe and good protection with unbelievable position. At the final roof you ... more >>

Comments: A total hoot circus trick climb. I have not done it in 25 years but I recall with one big cam to start and a couple 2.5-3.5 inches at the end you could climb it safely. Huge jugs at the roof exit. Near the lip you can get great leg jam and hang for a fun upside down shot.
