This was the first real J-Tree problem I sent. I recall being freaked out and scared for my life as I moved onto the secure looking chicken heads towards the top, and was visibly shaking after topping out. That was nearly 2 years ago.

Went back this weekend to do the problem again, and while I was no longer scared for my life, I was a bit puzzled as to why such an easy problem has such a high pucker factor. Ring locks, fist jams and highsteps are the name of the game here, all of which come after the half way point on the problem.

Highly recommended! Jan 19, 2009
