Of the 60+ rotues I did on J-tree in my last trip there, this was the third-least enjoyable...Buford's House of Liver was worse, and Junk Yard God sucks bald dog nuts.
Anyway, the climb itself has some less-than nice rock and gear, and the belay up top is a pain & blinded from the nice views you get from the top of other routes. This line starts up a crack on the N. End of the E Face (no sun in the winter) and continues up to an area past some crumbling rock and right onto the NE end of the rock. This would be a mentally and physically harder lead for most moderate climbers than Dinkey Doinks (5.8) would be.
A standard light rack up to 4"

With a name like that, you could give a guess at the FA and be right. [Hint, FA: Charles Cole, Gib Lewis]

I don't remember this being R at all. There were some fun moves, but it was pretty grainy and way short.

A very nice finger crack in a corner for the first half, then move out left on the face around the roof to easy climbing. Extra finger size with possibly one large 4" cam at the roof. 2-3" for the belay. I didn't notice anything disagreeable with this route.

Ok route with a few fun moves. Short but all the routes on this rock are. Not any harder than Dinky Doinks, maybe easier.

Good climbing to roof then unprotected stemming to top (#6 cam :-). Easy belay anchor. No loose rock. Scramble straight down off back.
