Comments: I followed this route early on in my climbing career, and felt foolish for how long I stood there before executing the move.

I followed this move last weekend, some 20 years later, and still felt foolish for how long I still stood there before executing the move.

Lots of good climbing on the first pitch, though.

Comments: Much cleaner now, and a high-quality route, I thought. Lots of good moves.

Comments: This is one or two decent moves, with mediocre pro at best, sandwiched by 40' of licheny 5.0 slab.

It seemed obvious to me that the one or two decent moves are finished by grabbing the tree, since there were no other holds and the tree is rather in the way, but neither the guide nor this entry mention using the tree. YMMV.

Comments: Don, given your 'commitment' comment, would you say an R rating is needed?

Comments: I really agree with Abdullah - four stars, and a must for any 5.8 leader. Of the many I've climbed at Josh, this one sticks out in my memory.

Comments: This area is not really 4 routes: it is two (short) routes with the opportunity to cross between them.

Very sunny and pleasant on a winter's day, but perhaps not a sole destination for the day.

Comments: I found the overlap on this to be well harder than anything on 'Here'. Pleasant route, although short.

Comments: The awkward start reminded me of a few mid-10s, and the climbing did not improve thereafter.

Also not a great route on 2nd - the bolts and the anchor are consistently to the side of the climbing, such that on TR you're always looking at a swing around the buttress. Just, awkward.

Comments: This is a really high-quality route, with good climbing the entire length of it.

Comments: In winter at least, this area was in shade by noon, not 'late afternoon'. It is solidly east-facing and has a buttress to its south that shades it even sooner.

Comments: It's a little hard to see the trail here, or figure out how this will look on most other days. But it's a beautiful picture.

Comments: Donald, I have modified most of your routes to reflect that they are currently only described as TR routes. For that reason, I also removed safety ratings.

In addition, I added (TR) to your first-ascent claims, as that is what you have indicated your style was for those first ascents.

Comments: I can see where the move at the initial crack would be much easier with a 6' reach, but one thrutchy-ish move with my reach (5'4") got it done.

Comments: It does eat nuts. But for the reason shown in the picture, a cam as a first piece is still a good idea.
