The first crack line I did in J-tree that felt as hard as similarly graded slabs... steeper than it looks, and powerful. My second summed it up:"I felt like a rock-star for the first few moves... then I had to jumar up to get back onto them."
A few 2-3" cams protect the hard climbing, and smaller cams and stoppers protect the climb after the corner is turned.
Nice climbing, and a lot harder than 'Chemical Warfare' on the Room To Shroom boulder in 'Wanderland' albeit of similar character.

|You may want to anchor the belayer for this one, a small vertical crack near the start works well with a tips sized cam and/or stoppers.|

|Sling your first piece or two at the start, otherwise the rope might run into the crack and your cam could become irretrievably stuck when you turn the corner.|

|can get up to the elevated start via easy scramble up the 2nd rocky gully to climber's left, the one with Cut Thin To Win at its bottom. that's also the most convenient easy descent for this part of the east face. so, not a big must to climb Such A Line first, though that's a great route, but which wouldn't require some of the gear needed for Around The World, esp if you want to pare down the lead rack for Such A Line|
