Nice movement to a crux 3/4 the way up. Classic.


Just right of "Blue Velvet." Start on ledge then left to first bolt.


5 bolts and anchors.

Best moderate at J Falls and a nice canidate for a re-bolting. Old SMC hangers with rusty heads. Try not to fall. Hard 5.10, not 11.

Nick... I agree. Guidbook says 10d and that's dead on. Oh and Phillip Carrier rebolted it.

A great line put up by the late Rich Bechler. Rich rated the route 5.11b.He also established "Emeperor of the North" 5.13 and "Detox" 5.12.
I think Rich knew what 5.11 was.
