The traverse under the roof is really loose, with a large flake just one medium tug away from raining down. A safer finish (IMO) is to go left of the roof and traverse back right or finish on White Lightening to the left. Nov 7, 2016

This was a great route for a beginner to JT. A couple of things. The flake on the traverse below the second roof is really loose. Placements to protect the traverse are very insecure. Once traversing around right under the roof, there is a nice place to build an anchor and belay the second. The rap off is just around and up right. If you are top roping this route from the rap anchors, realize that the finish is not 5.6, it is way harder. Apr 6, 2015

This is pretty decent route to practice cam placements for entry level trad climbers. I used lots of runners to reduce the rope drag with X4s and camelots up to about a 2. I always finish it out with the 5.10b Poodles are People Too exit to the left. Finish out to the right and head over to the rap rings or make a U-turn and set up the top rope from the rap rings directly above the route.

If you are looking for some decent crack, I would skip this route and head to white lighting to the left a few meters. Mar 24, 2015

A bit runout on small pro at the top. Watch for rappellers coming right down on top of you. Oct 17, 2012
