Technical and demanding moves are to be found on this route which offers decent but well spaced protection. As with many of the Hensel/Woodward routes at Josh one must be competent at the grade to fully appreciate them on lead. Two stars out of five.


About 50' left of Houser Buttress, on a separate block facing south.


3 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")


Recently followed this one. Poor rock through the first 2 bolts. Crux on clean patina and is protected. Necky getting to #1 and post crux. Dec 13, 2006
