Just Jerry to start the day.


Upon arriving at the spires, Just Jerry is the less-steep climb just to your right. Looking at it, I figured it would be a 5.7, as the holds are quite big and the rock is not steep. But the crux is certainly 5.9.

Just Jerry follows a line of bolts up and to the right, over the crux bulge, then back left onto an even less steep spire that has the anchors.

Just Jerry is a great fairly steep route with good holds, good pro, and a fun bulgy crux requiring a long reach. Instead of traversing left to ramp finish, make one or two moves up first adding some more hardish moves. Having forgot my chalk bag for the third consecutive weekend outing, this climb was definitely a bit on the stenuous side as I had to work extra hard not to slip off. Short but definitely worth doing!

Fun little warmup, but I felt like the crux move had good feet, maybe a little reachy for the short people. Mussyhooks at the top.

This climb is short but very fun between the first and last bolts.

As a shorter person, I found this to be a harder 5.9. I would warm up first if you can and count this as "spicy". The face is definitely more fun than the ramp.
