This is the crack in the center of the West Face. It�s about 5.8 and gets juggy near the top.

This was the first real J-Tree problem I sent. I recall being freaked out and scared for my life as I moved onto the secure looking chicken heads towards the top, and was visibly shaking after topping out. That was nearly 2 years ago.

Went back this weekend to do the problem again, and while I was no longer scared for my life, I was a bit puzzled as to why such an easy problem has such a high pucker factor. Ring locks, fist jams and highsteps are the name of the game here, all of which come after the half way point on the problem.

Highly recommended!
