My Wife having fun at te end of the day on Just an...


Climb the face of a rib between two waterchutes. The first bolt is a ways up, and it is even farther to the 2nd bolt. Pass two more bolts, a piton, and then another bolt. Shares chain anchors with Cowboy Jazz , or take some gear and top out.


Just left of Cowboy Jazz. It is between two waterchutes with a small pinacle at your back that can be used to stem.


5 bolts and a piton

First ascent was by Gene Larson. I'm not sure of the year, late 1980's I believe.

F.A. Paul Muehl & Pete DeLannoy around 1983 I believe... Before Gene Larsen started coming around here.

I have the FA listed as Paul Muehl, Gene Larson, and Howard Doyle, Aug. 4, 1984.

Not sure which guide this info came from - maybe Tolle's? Take it with a grain of salt. Brent was around then, I was yet to be born.

As you know, Gene started the names of his routes with 'Just', which is why I thought he was in on it. I climbed with Paul and Gene for the first time in '86, I don't think that was the first year he was in the Needles.
