Moving up the lower portion of JPwBG. May 2014.


Long climbing up wall just left of big corner. Keep on truckin’ with crux pulling up overlap about halfway up. Still potentially a bit loose, use caution. Take the shot!


The first route to the left of the huge chimney/cleft in the middle of the main wall.


10 bolts to anchors

First bolt placement is iffy, I'd skip it.

Sticking to the bolt line felt considerably harder than 5.8 around the 3rd/4th bolt. Some people went a bit left of the line and said it felt easier.

Following the bolt line felt much harder than other 5.8's like Super Arete.

I agree with the above commenters. There are two sections on this route that climb harder than 5.8.

The more challenging sections are at bolt 3/4 and a little higher where you have to pull an obvious bulge using a huge flake. Around bolt 9/10 pay attention for the anchors which are to climber's right of the bolt line.

This route is one of the more challenging 5.8 sport climbs I've experienced in NM.
