This route was also somewhat dirty and loose, lichen below, loose rock above. We knocked off several loose flakes near the top. The moves were pretty cool though . . . just needs more traffic to clean it up!

A fun variation to this route is possible. At the roof, instead of pulling directly over, traverse right through the undercling (more traffic will improve the quality of smearing here), and then up thin cracks after pulling the bulge on the right. Probably still 5.10c or so.

Bottom is still a little grainy/licheny, but the moves/gear is good, and the upper 3/4s of the climb is amazing. Also long for Jtree standards!

Yeah, the rock is a little grainy, but I'd take that anyday over those greased up campground climbs. Much more sustained and engaging at the grade than the nearby classic Poaching Bighorn, so I'll steal a star from that and give it here.
