Dave Rone attempts "Leaning Jowler" June...


This is the Face to the left of Four Little Fishies with four or five bolts leading to a crack. Follow the bolts through some thin and sometimes sharp edges to the crack. The crack will take a #1 or #2 Camalot and protect you to the anchors. Rap back to the base.Good, Solid 5.11


BoltsSmall to Medium Cam(s) for crack

I was just on this route yesterday. Totally 12a. There are 7 bolts and Pete Delannoy put it up,late 80s or so. It was repaired last year with all new stainless hardware. Thin crankin good time!

Getting out of bed feels like 12a. Soon I'll be able to let you know what 5o feels like, you young pup!

I would have to say the crystals on this route aren't getting any larger. The grade has always been questioned on this route 5.11d or 5.12a. Humidity helps with the hair splitting.
