This climbs the prominent crack on the upper left side of the face. Climb up brown face with big holds to this crack. Follow this crack to where it becomes a wide crack/chimney and follow that to the top.
The rap anchor is on a block, down and left of the top of this chimney.

Climbs of this grade in Josh are often choss, unprotectable, sand-bagged or all three. This is actually a decently long, quality route with good pro on good rock. The bolted route to the right, "Asian Fever," is good too. Nov 17, 2010

This is a very fun route, great gear and easy to moderate moves. Save something big for the top semi-chimney-stem move. Jul 31, 2012

Another vote in line with Kevin and Pete's. Relatively great rock quality and moves for this grade in J-tree. I really enjoyed this one; mellow but with a fun shift to vertical at the last section. Good for early leaders.

I was glad I had a #3 to plug at the bottom of the last section.

NOTE: Both me and my partner's rope and the two climbers after us had the rope get stuck on a small flake about 30' below the rappel. The gent after us was kind enough to pull our rope loose but then the same thing happened to him. Allegedly he had to climb up, free it and then down climb the section. He also said he ripped off the chossy flake so it wouldn't happen again. Jan 12, 2017

Thank god this gem is an hour walk down Boy Scout, because it is sooooo splitter, but probably never crowded! No one would wait around for the Bong if this were in camp. The unprotected face down low is fun and easy, and the crack is perfect BD 3's if you are racking up. Combo with Route 66 for two amazing splitters that make great easy leads or solos. Feb 2, 2018
