Serious techy face crimps on exfoliating J-Tree sl...

Description 

The route has beautiful position and this is its best quality. The moves are fun too, especially up higher, but some of the crucial crimps through the crux tend to be a little brittle. Good foot work, strong fingers, and good sequence reading all help you up this route, but the final bulge adds enough pump to remind you that endurance is always useful too.


Location 

This route is located on the West face of the Sport Challenge Rock and is about 25 feet right of Sphincter Quits. It climbs the brownish pillar and starts on top of a large boulder lodged against the wall.


Protection 

Bolts.

Per the brittleness of the climb: I seem to recall a clipping hold at the 2nd or 3rd bolt with a good amount of flex to it. It would certainly deposit one on the deck if one were to pull it off while clipping. Otherwise, cool route.
