Just Say No climbs the north face of the Lower Gemstone. Hike downhill from the Upper Gemstone and look for a northfacing wall with a vertical crack trisected by two horizontal cracks that run the length of the face. Climb perfect splitter hands up to the second horizontal. Now grovel left with no feet to the wide crack and continue to the big ledge. We walked off from here (mistake), the topo shows 5.8 to the top. There is a pretty tenacious plant at the end of the traverse that kept me from taking the swing.
Double rack of cams #0.75 to #2 Camalot, 1 #3.

The rating for this route will go up considerably when the key hold at the crux (the bush) pulls out. Great pitch though, just say yes!!!!!!

The first ascent was done by Noel Childs and "clean Dan" Grandusky circa mid 80s.
