A semi-classic Josh sport climb that is well worth doing if in the area.

The start may be a little reachy for shorter climbers, but persevere and enjoy the addicting crimps on the upper section of featured face.

The anchors are on the top a few feet back so you'll need to walk off this climb (to the climber's left) and perhaps extend the anchor if top-roping. Three stars out of five.


Directly across from the Exorcist facing east and readily identified as a short, steep brown wall.


4 bolts to anchors (1/2"). The fixed pin that used to protect between the first and second bolts has been gone for many years, but really isn't necessary.

All 4 lead bolts and the belay bolts are now 1/2"" Stainless Steel with stainless steel hangers thanks to the ASCA. Feb 7, 2017
The first bolt is missing, looks like it broke. We TR'd this off the third bolt by rapping. Jan 15, 2017
I redpointed Jane's this past Sunday. I know the rating stands at 5.11b, but it felt a touch harder than Uncle Remus, which I think is rated the same. Both are about the same length and reasonably similar style. Anyway, really fun route. Just wish it were longer. Feb 7, 2011

I would think steep sport climbers like yourself would onsite this without a bolt to bolt warm up. Jan 5, 2009

Steep sport climbers, such as myself, are attracted to this route, but I'm not enthralled by it. It's OK. If you're looking for great sport climbs in this area, face away from Jane's Addiction and walk 100m to Love Goddess, Moonshadow, and La Cholla - harder but better routes. Jan 5, 2009

Easily set up as a TR. Rounded reachy crux before entering the face above, then at the 3rd bolt (or so, as I recall) another crux while moving right. Nice route with nicer rock. Dec 24, 2005
