On the nervous friction section.


Up to overlap and, rather tricky, onto the slab above with the first bolt for protection. Rough friction, somewhat nervously, leads to the second bolt. More friction trending a little leftwards leads to a horizontal and small cam. Over the next overlap to finish. Possible groundfall before second bolt.


2 bolts (3/8"), medium cams for an anchor

Ah! Another fun one... The start can cause some frazzle if one is not used to Jtree friction... I personally feel the 5.9 is over rating the climb... Currently the rock has some loose sh*t on it... A little wind and a few more feet this season will take care of it!!!...
