This route is no better, nor no better protected than it's namesake, Junkyard God. The rock is somewhat crumbly in several spots (although the runout face up top is fine).

At the upper right end of the W. Face of Freeway wall, you can see a L-facing dihedral formed by a pillar. Climb straight up to the dihedral formed by the pillar, then up on top of it and right around the arete to the South face and continue upward to the top of the rock. The last 8M are runout, but on good stone. In reality, I am just documenting the line, not recommending it. I don't know what got into me - nobody should be that desperate for another run in J-tree. Go do something nice instead.


A standard J-tree rack with double set fo cams in hand-sized and mostly 2' slings.
