A serious endeavor, definitely R and not often led. There is a good clipping stance for the bolt, but getting there is risky.

As an aside, one of the worst descriptions of a JT climb I've seen recently.

Spoiler Alert for a better description! Please Do check out the route and enjoy the area!:

An attentive belay partner and bouldering gets one to the bolt and a well protected crux section. Following the crux, runout yet FAIRly easier climbing leads one into the awesome 5.10 thinness. Here granite reality shocks all prior judgement! Somewhat tricky, and possibly desperate pro in the final -forty to fifty feet or so of the climb- Is solid and excellent. A very fun spot and climb and a delectable lead. If leads were not better than beer n blu cheese bacon burgers that is...

Slightly devious descent to the top of AIWJ then (normal?) descent to packs.

DANC - your second description is at least entertaining.

x1515 - There's a difference between a Supertopo and inanity.

Adam - Thanks 20x.

Woodward/Hensel - Yikes!
