[Hide Comment] A fun climb on dubious looking rock. Actually the rock looks a lot worse than it actually is. Sep 9, 2009

[Hide Comment] Excellent route. Pumpy, especially near the overhanging crux. My feet cut off at the crux and I was pumped and at my limit, pushed hard to get through. Good spots to rest before and after crux. Happy to get the onsight. Nov 6, 2013

[Hide Comment] Beating a dead horse here, but: the two lunchbox-size jugs immediatley above the roof are a little loose. Earlier this year they were not, unless I just didn't notice. Jul 19, 2014

[Hide Comment] Word has it Jenga was cleaned up in mid-August. The climb is still safe and the rating hasn't changed. Sep 28, 2014
