Description 

A balancy mantle and some friction on a sloping shelf around a bulge to get to and past the first bolt are the meat of this climb, after which the difficulties ease and good edges lead past a few more bolts to the top. Definitely a fun route and worth doing if you're in the area.


Protection 

5/16" buttonheads in good shape except for 2nd bolt which is slightly bent and the rock surround the bolt is mildly cratered - luckily the difficulties are past by the time you clip the 2nd bolt, but it's a good candidate for replacement. Rap from 2 bolts w/ webbing (new as of 3/1/2003).

Decent climbing, but nothing to get excited about. Don't go planning your next J. Tree trip around this route.
