Follow the first obvious line after the pillar for Jumping Junipers. Surprisingly good protection and a good traditional route by Crowders standards.


From Desperately Seeking Juggage look cliff right towards Opinionated. Look for the left facing crack system leading up the wall.


North Carolina Trad Rack. Natural Anchor on a horizontal crack on a big ledge or climb out.

We climbed this back in October or November on a nice blustery day. I have no idea if we were on the right route. We took the obvious line right of the small pillar and route-Desperately Seeking Juggage. The line protected reasonably well with small gear.

Crux felt like it was from the pillar-like feature onto the face-proper.

We ended up trending well right as we approached the top. Belayed from a large pine tree ledge that had slings and natural gear available for belay setup. The climb is fine... sequence of moves is nice but the aesthetics leave something to be desired for sure.

If you're in search of a 5.8 at Crowders, no doubt Ooga is a better line than this one.
