Rachael just passed the crux on Court Jester. Nov....


This is only one of two 5.9s at the Dungeon. Fun climb though. Find the crux getting to the second bolt--may be somewhat height-dependent.


Located on another tower about 30 feet to the right (out the canyon) of Trash Tower.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

I bolted this one in a rainstorm (which didn't make it any easier to scrub the lichen off) and then climbed it with Walt. I think this was probably the last thing I put the drill to in that canyon...

A bit sequency for 5.9! A little more difficult than its neighbor Garbageboy. A nice route, worth doing.

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun easier (for the Dungeon) climb. 2nd bolt had some great moves but as long as you stay in sequence (or found the sequence to begin with), the moves come naturally and you will find yourself flowing up the face.
