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: I always thought the start was a bit scary and the route stouter than its original 5.9+ rating

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.

Comments: One hard reach (really long reach), rest is 5.7. Not really worth doing except you slogged all the way up here so you need a warm up.

Comments: Wonderful line on perfect rock. Short pitches that are all fun and a few pretty stout moves that are super well protected (bolt ladders). The descent is actually very easy and fast if you don't go off route. Once on top traverse a very short distance on the obvious ledge then look down for a lower ledge that leads down towards the gully (do not walk all the way back on the first ledge). Carefully down climb to this second ledge, traverse and down climb to a ledge with trees - one has a rap set u... more >>

Comments: I did the route today. The run out section of the first pitch is about 20 feet above a sloping belay ledge, 35 feet off the ground. Easy for the first 15 feet then probably about 6-8 feet of quite thin crimps and smears for the feet to a solid 1 inch wide, 6 inch long flat edge. I guess you could duct tape a hook on that though it might rip off the edge. The gear right there in the flake is questionable as it might just pull the flake. Just grab the flake gently and mantel onto the ledge, then y... more >>

Comments: Sweet climbing. We found good gear on pitch 2 - small cam then slotted wires or RPs all the way up to the roof. Don't miss this one - it is a wonderful trad route.

Comments: While I enjoyed climbing this route, I really do not think it is the quality of Birdland, (which I think is among the best routes in the park for good rock and classic climbing). We did the first pitch as described but looking at the photo posted here we were a bit further left - started off the boulder, climbed up past 3 horizontals gradually moving from left to right. The final horizontal was full of dirt and crumbling but we just climbed straight over it until standing above the final section... more >>

Comments: The first pitch deserves to be done just for its own sake. Great pitch. As others have commented, I would suggest it is a bit harder than 5.10d as an onsite. Once I flew off and had time to see the holds it went but it was still hard. Bring some tiny cams for the last, easier half of the pitch. Unfortunately you then have a few hundred feet of not such good climbing to the final great pitch, which distracts a bit from a higher star rating. We did the final splitter as two pitches - climb the 5.... more >>

Comments: This route would be 4 stars if it either was more sustained or it didn't have the two cruxes and was an easier grade. Regardless the rock is beautiful black varnish for a few pitches with great moves, then very interesting though less solid rock through the 5.9 roof. I guess the crappy bolt is gone since I never clipped it. The crux is short and fun - couple quick boulder moves that I guess might be 5.10. I would not belay at the "first" belay - just step right from the initial crack out on the ... more >>

Comments: This would be a 3 star route if you could keep climbing it to a belay straight up and it cleaned up a bit. As it stands, climb the face to the left of the corner, get in gear when you hit the crack, climb it through the roof and above. Once the crack peters out drift right - skip the chimney belay and keep going to the bushes until you find the tiny tree belay from which you can rappel. No need for a belay in the middle since it goes easily to the tree as a single pitch. You will need 2 ropes to... more >>

Comments: Pitch 2 has some nice crack climbing that is probably stout for the 5.8 grade at RR. Save small cams to about 0.75 for the belay on pitch 3. Pitch 4 would be R or maybe X rated if you go straight for the crack 100 feet up on the white stone as I initially did. I reversed from quite high and traversed left a bit to clove-hitch a plate and then felt much safer. So I suggest that on pitch 4 you drift a bit left then back slightly right to the crack as the direct line gets quite run out on sloper sa... more >>
