The bolted line that starts immediately left of Walk on the Wild Side. Tightly squeezed between WOTWS and Cole-Anderson. Included in Vogel's Classic Routes & Bouldering guidebook. Might be worth doing if you're waiting for WOTWS, but not a destination route--the line is somewhat contrived, and if you are not careful you will find yourself on one of the adjacent climbs before you know it.


Start in the pit just left of Walk on the Wild Side


The pro is all shiny bolts (1/2"), tightly spaced by Josh standards.

I liked this route more than WOTWS, thoughtful movements with some cool cruxes. Though friction climbing was never my thing so it felt a bit runout (but such is life at JTree). It's probably not that bad though if you have a cool head, just not a pleasant fall as with all slab climb, especially when some crux moves "felt" way above the previous bolt

Did this one several years ago thinking we were getting on WOTWS. First pitch felt about 5.8. Second pitch has the crux 10a/b move which is well protected. Rock quality was poor in some places and a hold broke off on my partner while leading mid crux.

All lead and belay bolts are now 1/2" stainless steel bolts with stainless steel hangers courtesy of the ASCA.
