JK leading THTF.


loose rock, but with some nice moves on steep rock


This is on the north face of the rock, in a prominent right-facing dihedral about 100 feet to the left of Friendly Hands. It has the same start as Third World, but goes over the roof instead of around it.

Worthwhile route on the face... While you don't technically do any roof moves, the stemming is fun.

This climb is, appropriately, named after a Jimmy Cliff song.

"the harder they come the harder they fall, one and all"

this route should be called "hard to fall" because it is way easy for the rating.
