This is the crack and chimney system right of The Sound of One Shoe Tapping and W. A. C.
The traditional rating is 5.2, but the chimney moves for the exit sequence are probably more 5.4ish.
If you're not leading 5.8 friction, this is a good route to hang a toprope on the aforementioned routes.
Medium to largish trad gear to a shared chain anchor.

This route can reach the anchors for the sport routes which are adjacent to Helix. Using larger gear and long runners, it is a choice lead for trad beginers and good practice at placing gear. Although I should mention that not a lot of gear is used on this route compared to other J-Tree routes. If nothing else the access to rap anchors verses walking off makes this route a quick hit.

Worth doing if only to get to anchors for other climbs. Good rock, easy gear placements. Not much needed for an experienced leader.
