One of the better routes on the Thin Wall, this takes a featured crack system 15' left of an obvious right-facing corner system.

Fun climbing down low leads to a cruxy bulge which is passed via positive incut holds and jams. One star out of five.


A selection of wires and cams to 2" or so will be adequate. Walk off to the south (climber's left).

Might have to agree with 5.9+ at most. While steep, the route is covered in jugs. An awesome lead all in all.
Tricky gear down low. Oct 28, 2016

Uncharacteristic grade by JT standards. Possibly the softest 5.10 in the park. Great confidence booster. Jan 24, 2016

Felt like 95% of this route was easier then 5.9 to the right (Count your fingers) with only one hard section up top. Possible a 5.9+ compared to right ski track Nov 1, 2013
Count on your Fingers, at 5.9, is a more sustained climb in my opinion, while this is fairly soft for J-Tree .10a (much easier than say, Bird of Fire). Instead of using the bolt as a directional at the top, just plug a bomber cam below the lip. Less rope drag, and no real danger for the second at that point. Great route, get on it. Dec 11, 2008

Fun climb and great overhang! Nice jam for the crux. THE must do at Thin Wall, IMHO. Apr 30, 2007
Cool moves at the top. Sep 22, 2006

Felt pretty good for the grade. Definitely harder than Count on your fingers, and it's steeper at the top. Place a good piece at the horizontal below the final overhang and then fire the moves to the top. Placing gear in the vertical cracks during the meat of the overhang will flame you out, plus you take away good holds by doing so. A good lead or top-rope - fire it! Dec 31, 2005

Pulling the bulge was the crux on this one but as stated above, it's a "pull and go" type move but 10a in finding the move and pulling it all the same. At the top there is a single bolt placed to keep the rope straight up the route and the bolts above Count on Your Fingers are used for the anchor. Cool way to set up the bolts on top I thought.

I once watched in awe as an 80+ year old German man worked his way up this one - very inspiring! Feb 28, 2003
