Fun Solo! All there and a real kick. Also a good one for those wishing to lead something solid, easy to protect, easy approach and so on. I give it a "Star" from a solo standpoint.


This route protects well with a set of stoppers and cams up to 3 inches. Save the your larger pieces of pro to setup bely/top rope in the large crack at the top.

Lead this on 01/05/2018. Great climb for a beginner leader. Lots of protection opportunities for both nuts and cams. Lots of good gear stances. I used a block and a thin crack sitting about 6 feet over the edge to build my gear anchor. The 5.6 grade is pretty mellow for J-Tree standards in my opinion. Scramble off to climbers right or scramble up and left to setup a top-rope on some of the other bolted anchors. Jan 8, 2018

Was there a month ago. Fun lead! Yes, the 1st 5 ft can be strenuous for a new leader such as myself on placements. Had a great climbing partner/teacher too!! It helped a lot! Overall a great route! May 20, 2012

First few feet are pumpy to place gear for a new leader, in my opinion. Oct 31, 2011

Agreed. If a friend is looking for their first trad lead, this is a good route. Mar 14, 2010

A great first lead, with almost no jamming needed and excellent gear. Pretty short though, otherwise it would get more stars. Dec 31, 2005
