Comments: One 60m rope will get you to the ground from the top of P1.

Comments: The start of this route can be identified by a small tree/bush growing out of the crack midway up the first pitch. The original start is from the left, starting up The Jam Crack. A 5.10c direct start leads up from the right which passes a small roof and then a bolt and hits the crack below the tree.

One 60m rope will get you back to the ground from the top of P1.

Comments: I think having an arm cast on would definitely downgrade this climb to 5.10b if not 5.9. It would really give the unfair advantage of extra armor and you could jam it in all sorts of new and creative ways.

Comments: This climb has taught me an important lesson. Wear socks, long pants, a short sleeve shirt AND a long sleeve shirt, as well as a helmet and tape gloves. With all of this on I was still bleeding when I finished. Very strenuous past the first half, but just keep inchworming and stick with it!

Comments: Seemed impossible at first. Once the sequence is figured out this climb goes solid, I swear it. Try going straight up the orange rock as opposed to from the left as the climber in the photo for a more direct line. Very fun climb but tough to figure out.
EDIT - I just upped my stars for this climb. Every move requires thought and many are equally difficult. Rock is solid albeit slippery. One of my favorites at Mission Gorge.

Comments: There are bolts for the TR so no need to bring any fancy gear if that's the plan.

Comments: Bring gloves if you even plan on LOOKING at this thing. Very "meaty" as stated above.

Comments: The bottom half of the climb up past the flakes is a little runout, but easier than 5.9. Consider slinging the first hollow flake. I did and felt it was much safer than using nuts. Climb protects very well at the crux with the aforementioned .75; bring more than one.
