Would have been fun on lead if the was three or four bolts, but I'll pass Dec 12, 2011

"I was there yesterday (2/22/09) and three of the bolts have been removed (the second and fifth bolts remain). Makes it a tad more interesting. :-) Anyone know who did that? Even though I loved the extra bolts, it's now more of a typical JT route."


Yes I know who did the "CHOP" job...

I admit...

It was a wee bit OVERBOLTED...

I may go back and do a little repair job...

It originally had only 2 bolts and a crappy gear placement in the horizontal... Dec 26, 2009

Granted this route may have been over-bolted, but it could have been a refreshing alternative for someone strapped leading at that grade. Now were left with yet another 30ft. tall hole riddled embarassment, barely worth the attention of the seasoned climber, yet not worth dying over for the budding leader. Oct 23, 2009

Not a bad route to get the kinks out. I liked it.

This is a fine, short warmup route and a friendly, comfortable intro to JTree slab for your newb friends. Nov 12, 2007

Damn, 5 bolts in 40-45 feet, at 5.7, where were you 20 years ago when I first started climbing at JTREE? Jun 18, 2007
