This climb lies on the west face of the wall with Exorcist and Diamond Dogs, but at the far right side where it is slabby.

Begin with a right-slanting crack shared with Search For Klingons and continue up slabby face past three bolts. Rap from anchors or continue to the top and walk-off to climber's left.

Not an especially memorable route- just another grainy Josh slab, but than again there are worse routes.


3 bolts (5/16"), 2 bolt anchor/rap

A one-move-wonder with the crux move getting past the first bolt. I've led this once and TR'd it once and both times the move felt stout for 10a. Otherwise an uneventful route.

Nice, typical JT slab climb. There's a two bolt rap anchor after the slab eases off. This can also be used to top-rope this climb, as well as Search for Klingons and Casual, but takes about 20' of runners to remove the rope drag.
