Description

This route will test your faith in the J-Tree stone! Very delicate thin edging starts the route off with a crux section between the 3rd and 5th bolts. The start could be considered the 10c section depending on height. A fun route to top-rope as well after climbing Lead Us Not Into Temptation (5.9). The best decent is to rap off the Lead Us Not Into Temptation anchors. Enjoy!

Protection

6 Bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (with no rap rings).

[Hide Comment] A fun and well-protected outing on the lesser visited backside of the North Astro Dome. Good for after warming up on Lead Us Not Into Temptation. Three stars out of five. Mar 3, 2005
