Comments: Just for clarity, Jazz on the Mezzanine is not the route labeled 6 in this pictures. It's around the corner on the shaded face. It begins off the brightly lit block in the bottom right of the photo on sidepulls.

The route labeled 6 is "Q's" 5.9.

Comments: ^^^In response to Rob, routes that traverse, overhang, etc. are much easier and safer to clean on lower than rappel. Yes, this does require one more lower on the fixed anchor hardware but is more than acceptable (and typically intended). When doing this, you can avoid swinging as well by fixing a trolley draw from you to the rope end going through the draws.

Or clean on follow.

Not trying to be condescending if you know all of this already, but we had no issues cleaning it with either of these... more >>

Comments: The top is excellent. The bottom isn't quite as dirty/bad as it looks.

Comments: River was high but doable today. We found a couple of places to cross with the water up to mid/upper thigh.

Worth noting that this time of year the wall actually gets sun until 10 or 11 am.

Comments: Thanks, Tod, I'll edit that in. I figured it was you, but I didn't have FA info.

Excellent route!

Comments: Fun route. The rock quality is less than awesome on a few of the pitches but overall pretty good. I think it's worth saying that although listed as 1500 ft, there is probably another 200-300' of easy 4th/5th class scrambling to get to the first pitch/summit from the end of the last pitch.

Also notably the 5.easy scrambling at the top after the last pitch did have one (brief) maybe 20' section of not easy climbing. It felt about 10+ to ... more >>

Comments: ^^^ In response to the above comment... the anchor is good now, with standard rap rings on both bolts. Also, maybe you're describing a "lap link"?

Comments: One of the rare hand friendly routes in the area. Gets full on sun during most of the day though, making it a good morning/evening route (or winter).

Comments: WBY also sports a direct start off the ramp at about 12a. Ends up at the same no-hands rest, so it doesn't really increase the overall difficulty but makes the belay spot nicer.

Comments: Anyone have beta they wouldn't mind sharing for "the move"? I'm totally stumped! The rest of the route is really cool, but the one move is such a show stopper for me.
