Start in notch with small roof. Work up some small holds tending left to jugs. Straight up to top. #12 JJ's old topo.

I would say there are 3 possible lines here. One is straight up the far left crack at about v2/3, two straight up the right crack just left of the small overhang at againv2/3, and three would be starting with the jugs on the right of the overhang and going straight up on descent holds at v1/2ish. The first line described is my favorite. Apr 29, 2007

It feels like the natural line is straight up to maintain a sustained V2+. Going either left or right makes it a little easy. Oct 3, 2008
