Comments: Thanks Kyle for letting us get on this yesterday (10/22/17) This is a great route with great holds (just try to keep hold of them, as the climb is STEEP)

Comments: At the 7th bolt, don't cheat and go right. Stay right on the bolt line. Sergey Shevelev, maybe you went right at the 7th bolt?

Comments: Kyle: I led this on 9/14/17 with hangs. I'll have to think about it and get back on it again before I star and rate it. It definitely was an interesting route and an asset to the area. Keep up the good work Kyle.

By: John Robinson When: Sep 10, 2017

Comments: This route should now be called Fries without that Mantle as someone figured out how to go right at the mantel and make it easier. I would never do that, however, as I always stay on the bolt line.

Comments: Cole Paiement, in a previous comment, says "Soloed this linkup today, my first time on any of these three peaks. Car to car in 6.5 hrs. I was hiking fast, but still taking rests here and there. For a soloist, 5-8 hours is a good window" My hat's off to Cole as I think that is a very good time. I think 5 hours would be an Alex Honnold time. I think 10 hours would be an excellent time for a competent soloist who is in good shape and acclimated. Last Saturday, after doing Tenaya and M... more >>

Comments: If you are doing this linkup without ropes I wouldn't recommend doing it on a weekend or holiday. Tenaya and Matthes Crest will not be a problem but when you get to Cathedral you will see a mass of climbers and, because it is an "easy" climb, many of the climbers will be inexperienced and might dislodge rocks or drop gear and, for a soloist, that is death. I was doing the triple unroped on Aug 26, 2017 (a saturday) and got to Cathedral at 2pm fresh and ready to go. A young woman wa... more >>

Comments: I only used one cam on this climb, a 3/4 inch piece. Otherwise, I felt like it was bolted very well. On the last section I ran it out after the last bolt but it is only 5.6 climbing

Comments: "Location" says "JFMR starts uphill of Racing Lizards". It's 150 feet above Racing Lizards. You will find another line of bolts about 50' above JFMR also. There is a gully about 50 feet below JFMR that had a fixed line in it and it will eventually become another route.

Comments: Euan, you are both observant and wise. I know my description is poor that's why I am asking anyone who knows about this route to help me out. I put the this route in the database cause I added 3 routes to it's left that I do know something about and have climbed some of them and I wanted to fill in some blank spots for reference. Like I said, next time I am at Owens, I will get on this route and improve my description.

Comments: Marty's guide book gives this route 3 stars which means great. I gave it 2 cause I know nothing about the route. Next time I am at Owens I will attempt to climb it and provide more information. Has anyone climbed it? If so how scary is it? Marty gives it an R rating.
