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.

Comments: It's pretty obvious, but: the first pitch is a full 30m and the hardest moves are off the ground, so take care of the follower appropriately.

Comments: Really high quality. I found the leftward moves under the overhang to be fairly difficult; it looked like you could possibly make face/slab moves about 10' left of where I was at that point.

The rap is almost a full 30m, so make sure you're at the middle of your rope.

Comments: ... that's because you're doing it way too high. Move right with your hands where your feet are in this picture, and it's trivial.

Comments: No anchor on the tree as of Memorial Day 2016.

There is better gear than you might see from the ground, in the horizontals.
