"That's going to leave a mark." The moves were fun, but one key jam was a little sharp. This was the one climb in J-tree (I did 92 routes on this past trip) that made me wish I'd taped up a little. My non-taping parnter and I had matching dents/scratches after the pitch.

Just left of the ever-popular pitches of Calcutta & Bombay there is a vertical crack going up 5 Meters to a roof, which you can jam and stem up and right to get through. Climb up and over this (crux, decent pro) and finish on easier rock to the top of the wall.

Were it not for the grit and sharpness of a few moves, I'd give it 2 stars. Honestly, this route would clean up with some traffic, but it doesn't get any.


A set of nuts and cams. Tricams go well too.

underrated imho.... Jan 7, 2014
How is belayer's leg? I was on ground belaying Double Trouble, and saw from about 20 ft away. Came over and helped. Some more pictures from that before it happened, if they might help:>>>

from someone elses comment on pic.. thought this should be upfront on main page comments for the climb.. Apr 17, 2013
It may be chosy in the beginning of the climb but I think the moves are fun. I like it. Feb 8, 2010
im incorrectly noted at a first ascentionist here
joey and i did tope roped this pitch on the date mentioned, in the june sun with the rotting corpse of some gopher size animal just out of jams reach in the cruz, but the name is certainly from an earlier ascent Jul 3, 2008
