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: As Jes C. said, try to do the last move before you clip the anchors. I installed the chains so weenies like me could do it

Comments: The Bowman road is now open so you can drive to the Emeralds but snow blocks the road before you get to Bowman

Comments: Any opinions on the accommodations at Quita La Pagoda? We can rent a 3 bedroom house there.

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.

Comments: Jeff Scheuerell: Dan told me this route is called Roughing It. If I am wrong, let me know. I hope I have this route in the correct location. I was a bit confused by what Dan told me as to location.

Comments: Recently climbed this. When I was 62 and young I used to be able to make the crux reach move. Now that I am 72 and elderly, I can't quite reach the crux dike but, as you get older you get more clever, I figured out a way to go right around the crux. I think I shrunk one inch from age 62 to 72. A 70m rope is a bit short but the downclimb is doable. If you want to have more fun, climb the next two pitches of this climb (Showtime). I did it when I was young (see above) Now that ... more >>

Comments: I gave this route 2 stars but I have never done it so have no idea how many stars it deserves. I am required to give a route stars when I put it in the database. Next time I'm at Owens I will climb it and update my stars.

Comments: Above the mid anchors the route is somewhat chossy for a short section but with good holds.

Comments: I lowered off the top anchors of this route with a 70m rope. (Maybe my 70m rope was longer than 70m?)

Comments: People are complaining that you will deck if you fall before clipping the second bolt. I don't think that is the case if you have an attentive belayer. (That second bolt was added after the climb was established, so just think of the decking potential without it). Climbing is a dangerous sport but certainly, Brad, Mike and I want it to be as safe as possible so give us more of your opinions on the fall potential before clipping the second bolt and we can adjust things if that... more >>

Comments: If you get into the growth and dirt, you are off route, especially at the jam crack. There you can easily cheat and stay right in the crud but why would you want to avoid a beautiful jam crack?

Comments: I definitely had shorter people in mind with that chain draw. Hope they appreciate it. I think Bill Price is 6' 8" or so.

Comments: Caliza: If you think the very top is harder than 11c you aren't doing it correctly. If I can do it, it's 11c or easier cause I have no strength, balance, technique, ability, persistence, patience, or desire.

Comments: At the crux you better have a lot of flexibility in your left high step. A bit of a one move wonder climb
