Great climb, harder than it looks from the ground.

Excellent Climb.

Rap into the gully, then easy short down climb (Class 4). Don't bother with another rap.

Just did this route during a trip to JTree. So awesome! Hard moves on the initial slab right into the exciting, exposed arete. Finally two thought provoking bulges get you to the top. DO this route, and then DO Bish for a totally awesome few hours of climbing. We started around 3p(ish) and LG was in the shade, and by the time we started Bish it was fully in the shade as well. Good times good times. Ill be back for a second helping on these two beauty's for sure!

I think the route has "evolved" slightly due to the exfoliating, grainy nature of the rock on the bottom slab. This felt more comparable to some of the 10+ slabs I have done in the park. Good climb though, and the belay anchor needs rap rings/chains. We rappelled with our rope running straight through the hangers, gritting our teeth on the way down. Yikes!

Did this route last winter, thought it was one of the better protected routes in JT. 10B/c seems right. The crux for me was swatting off the biting red ants from the crack, as i was climbing the slab.

Good route. Definitely harder than it looks with a couple/three tricky moves, but really well protected.

Grainy slab. Needs a LOT more traffic to clean up.

Amazing route, one of my favorites in the park. Love that it was ground up. Felt 10- to me, don't let the grade deter you.
