  • Description 

    Just Do It is a mixed face and crack route on the far left side of The Garden. Start about 10' left of the pine tree that's 15' up the wall (on the route Fine Fir) by a sloping ramp.

    Climb up, clip a bolt, and move up to a ledge (5.8). Continue straight up hand and finger cracks, move up left, clip a second bolt and step up to the anchor. Lower off hooks.

    Location 

    On the far left side of The Garden, about 10' left of Fine Fir. A bolt at the start identifies the route.

    Route #19 in the ?beta photo?.

    Protection 

    2 bolts, gear to #2 Camalot, 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

    I lead this last night with Tristan. Funny because we didn't realize this was a mixed climb. (It was too dark to see any bolts.) I got about half way up and realized there were no more bolts. Luckily I had my trusty #11 stopper and some extra alpine slings. Slotted the nut and slung a "horn" on the left. Ran it out to the anchors. Wicked easy if this was a nine. I say 5.7 or 5.7-

    The last bolt is kind of pointless when the anchor is 2 5.6 moves away.

    Nice route, I lead 5/17... Protects well, I give it 5.9 in the crack, but if you step left, 5.7 what a sweet area, Kudos to Ron & Bob for cleaning this place up and getting it recognized.

    Felt like 9 if you stick to the face after third bolt.
