Comments: Climbed an "approach" pitch which we thought was P1 of Yellow Rose. Book said to climb to a crack with one bolt. Really sandy and felt much harder than 10a...any idea what this might be?

Comments: Amazing route in a spectacular setting. This baby barely goes! I agree that getting back to the corner was one of the crazier moves I've ever attempted, but I think the moves leaving the corner could be even harder. In my case I settled more like on a move rather than "moves". Any idea if the lateral dyno was the right mindset?

Comments: Why this gets low stars is beyond me . . . the finish is a combination of bouldering, rattles, and pure power. One of the better finger cracks in the area!

Comments: Coming from MT . . . this route deserves more stars. might not be a classic in J-Tree standards, but is still a classic in comparison to MT climbing!

Comments: Could be one the best granite splitters out there! If you're doing the Prow you should probably sack up and lead this puppy. Provides some wonderful free climbing to start out what is otherwise a lot of aid
