This looks like a reallly big climb in this photo. Ran is approaching the upper slab. We did the direct start, the first move of which is much harder than it looks at maybe 5.8. The regular route starts higher to the right.

These moves are actually way easier than 5.8. The harder movers which are probably legitimate 5.6 (J-tree standards) are up-high. Jul 23, 2011

If you feel comfortable (it's all there), this start eliminates most of the rope drag that might keep you from climbing it in one pitch...for that reason, I think it's preferable. Jul 31, 2011

The start of this route is a jug fest and is definitely not 5.8. It's more technical up high on the slab. Jan 1, 2012
