BETA PHOTO: Banana Peel
Steep, with the typical crimpy delicate face moves often found at J-tree. This route ascends the steep face right of the Banana cracks above the hand traverse. The obvious way to finish the route is to join the Right Banana crack where the crack gets larger and offwidthy.
On the steep face right of Right Banana Crack
2 bolts, gear to 4"

This variation was hand-drilled on lead from hooks, and the first bolt was quite scary to put in because if it would have popped, the leader would drop and bounce off the ledge into space below. Sort of a pucker factor on that one. We'd looked at the possibility of a good face route here when lowering off the Right Banana Crack, and it was our intention that this face land one directly at the crux of that route. Glad to see people climb it, and drilling the second bolt off a hook was a lot easier on the mind. I thought the drive-em-straight-down-finger-tip- mantle was a cool move...
