The "walk off" is more akin to the Class 4 downclimb from the north end of the The Blob- some pretty committing moves that could or should be belayed for first time climbers. We climbed down the boulder prow almost directly north, crux being a skinny body chimney that required some arm bars to wiggle feet and hips lower down.
Then again, if you're climbing this JTree chimney, you're probably not a real "first time" climber. Easy rating, but any JTree chimney takes a good amount of experience to lead successfully. Jan 7, 2013

there's a solid near-horizontal block (not the smaller loose one) with two holes above the topout. could thread the rope through the smooth hole on climber's right, if one wants to rap down. straightforward pull afterward with some friction but not bad. Sep 23, 2018

Can this be tr'd with a respectable gear anchor?
