Steep edging and crimpy, climb up thru huecos. Balancy moves, tricky sequences.


First route on the right from the arete, there's a nice seat in a boulder in front of it.


7 Bolts to cold-shut anchor.
This was the first sport route bolted at NJC. Dec 27, 2006

I believe it's 7 bolts to the shut anchor. From the ground it looks as if the bulge towards the top is going to be the business. However, I found the large hueco (3rd maybe) to be difficult and provided zero rest. Nice little knee hook inside made it easy to go left for a crimp.

Thanks Jack for providing such fun entertainment! Jan 2, 2007

Very nice line. Four bolts up, trying to pull through the slight bulge, proved very! difficult for me. Jun 6, 2011

Similar in difficulty to "Good to be Awake" but of lesser quality. It's somewhat sustained once you leave the huecos and the rock in the crux area isn't the best with some obvious broken holds. Feb 24, 2012

Balancy footwork and thin crimpy hands after third hueco. I gastoned the jug by the fifth bolt with my left hand for the clip and it felt awkward and less than ideal. Pretty sustained climbing throughout however there are a couple of good rest spots. Jan 3, 2013

Very nice route with some fragile rock. Compared to other 11a's I've done, this one seemed a bit harder (hence my 11a/b rating). A couple hard moves off the deck get to easier climbing through the huecos, then back to small holds and delicate moves. Crux for me was clipping the 4th bolt off the crimps. Apr 10, 2017
