Description

The bolted line that starts immediately left of Walk on the Wild Side. Tightly squeezed between WOTWS and Cole-Anderson. Included in Vogel's Classic Routes & Bouldering guidebook. Might be worth doing if you're waiting for WOTWS, but not a destination route--the line is somewhat contrived, and if you are not careful you will find yourself on one of the adjacent climbs before you know it.

Location

Start in the pit just left of Walk on the Wild Side

Protection

The pro is all shiny bolts (1/2"), tightly spaced by Josh standards.

Did this one several years ago thinking we were getting on WOTWS. First pitch felt about 5.8. Second pitch has the crux 10a/b move which is well protected. Rock quality was poor in some places and a hold broke off on my partner while leading mid crux. Apr 27, 2016

I liked this route more than WOTWS, thoughtful movements with some cool cruxes. Though friction climbing was never my thing so it felt a bit runout (but such is life at JTree). It's probably not that bad though if you have a cool head, just not a pleasant fall as with all slab climb, especially when some crux moves "felt" way above the previous bolt Mar 4, 2014
