This is, at this time, the first route on the right side of the Corral Wall. It's located about twenty-five feet in from the notch. Begin on easy rock about twenty feet or so to the right of the Czech crack. Climb up and left to a ledge. Climb the face past two bolts. There will be a third bolt protecting the final face climbing above.

Better climbing than appearances suggest make this a worthy endeavor if in the area. Descend by walking west and rapping from anchors atop Hang 'em High or descending the easy gully adjacent to that route.

One of the few climbs that Bobby Tarver left his mark on at Josh. Sadly he was killed in a rope jumping incident a number of years ago, but his carefree spirit and engaging personality will be remembered by all who met and knew him. Nov 9, 2004

I led this route for the first time Sunday. The Bartlet guide has it rated at nine plus; I agree it's a 10a. It's a very good route. Nov 9, 2004

Considering the height-dependancy of the first clip and the probability of death if you fall before making it, One should carefully consider the suggestion here- To take and place pro before attempting the clip if they are not 5'9" or so...As well, flip the rope to climbers left after topping out to avoid scaring your second with a nasty swing after unclipping the last bolt.

FA: Archer and Tarver, 12/90. Originally rated 5.8 or .9

I climbed several new routes in this area with Bob during that winter, including 6 routes (5.7-5.10) on an unnamed crag in Upper Dodge City. Maybe the BT Memorial Buttress? Anyway, those routes are posted in the comments section with some hand-drawn topos and a pic or two.

The 90-91 season was a good year...

There's plenty of good gear below the first bolt. Not much death. We led through the first section roof of Czech crack and then joined Bucket Bronco. This was a great combo and super protectable. Super fun, looong (for J-tree) and diverse climb.

Plus this is a trad (mixed) climb. Of course take gear. Oct 29, 2013

Half a star. There are a couple of cool moves, but mostly blah. After the 2d bolt, you have nothing for gear unless going out to the right or off to the left. Even tho it's easy climbing thru there, a mishap would have the climber splattering all over the ledge below. Then there's 20 ft of scary friction slab above and off to the side of the last bolt. Finally, you get to a one-bolt anchor with just the hanger -- no chain, no ring. Feb 18, 2017
