Description

Joint Therapy begins with the Groper start but instead of angling right to the Honey Pot chains fires straight up to an anchor 30 feet left of the HP chains. Harald had proposed putting this route in a year ago with the intent of coming out through the small roof system left of Honey Pot. Shortly later he was sidelined by a knee replacement surgery that put him out of commission altogether. JT consists of nearly perfect rock throughout, is largely quite moderate, and may provide Harald with an opportunity for some rock rehab. While JT uses the Groper start, I did not find anything that seemed to come in at 5.10.

Location

Use the Groper start, 20 feet right of Feline Antics.

Protection

Eight quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

The "Groper start", which is apparently the first 3(?) bolts of Joint Therapy, felt like 10a to me. After Harald's comment that he had bolted Groper, I had expected to find a separate bolt line that branched off to the right from JT. There doesn't appear to be any such bolts heading to the Honey Pot anchors, but JT is well bolted with new-looking bolts. Sep 4, 2017
