Description

R.J. is a great introduction to the grade with good gear and a variety of different types of climbing from fingers, hands, a roof and some slab moves.

Starting about 20' left of a detached pinnacle, follow a thin crack up and right to a hand crack. When the hand crack ends, angle up and left to a roof, then move up onto a slabby face protected by a single bolt. Continue up the face to the anchors.

Location

Starts just right of Mineral Fright and Jefferson Airplane, about 20 ft left of the detached pinnacle in a thin crack. Bolted anchors at the top.

Protection

Mostly small to medium gear.

This route is loads of fun and one of the more aesthetic lines I've led on the north end. Great pro, and that single bolt has a distinct calming effect for the moves through the crux. Must do! Aug 6, 2007

Best 5.9 for me yet! Probably one of the best in the SE. Didn't really know where the crux was... I like slab! Jun 2, 2009

Great route! Solid 5.9 climbing, fun moves, good gear. Had to finish it in the rain though, made the crux a bit more interesting.... Nov 21, 2011

a purple metolus tcu or master cam protects the start of the thin crack. then fire it until you reach the ledge. the ledge has a jug but you have to reach in towards the back for it to be really good. Aug 28, 2013
