I though this was a challenging route with bolts a little spaced to keep you honest. Kinda hard for 10a I thought. Maybe it was just hard/scary because I climbed it in Sept, in the sun with my Boreal Aces!

Climbed it yesterday, I am going out on the rating limb and saying 5.10b.

Definitely .10a. Great moves up smooth rock!. This is no harder than heart and sole, just a little less edging and more smearing. Probably why it was harder in Sept!

My so called "Partner" had me lead this yesterday telling me it was a 5.8+. Yeah right! After a few slips and slides on what felt somewhat "Polished" at the start, I gave my shoes a good scrub and made it on up with no problems. Nice, fun, but a bit smooth I assume due to all the climbers through the years. Tan!!! I still owe you...................now it's is TWO!!!

This was one of my first 5.10 leads. I remember feeling like I had really accomplished something on this one !! Do it in the morning when its in the shade and stay relaxed when clipping those bolts.
A great test for your face climbing skills. Solid 10a.

This route has fallen into obscurity. One must now begin the climb by tunneling through a horrible thorn bush to get up to the (high) first bolt. The tree does eliminate the ground fall potential though :)

Fun Route, Fun Slab, Nice protection down low and gear up high. Nothing To write home about, but a fun time killer if your waiting in line and trying to brush up on your J-tree slab!
