SD or Stand Start


Start low nice rails or standing and move to crimp side pull and two finger pocket, move up through a disguising sea of moss to find decent pockets all the way up to a series knobs and rails for top out.


This is one of those typical joinerville honeycomb looking climbs with thin limestone and small nuggets that tend to break off. Be cautious which holds you grab and where you place your feet. Hopefully with time and more traffic there will be less moss and better rock.

Cleaned this topout a bit and possibly? did the 1st/2nd with Chris Sedlacko back in Nov 2016. Nice to see someone went and named this area. Looking to get more work done on the top next time I'm there. We just had a trail day yesterday and massively cleaned up the deer trail through the gunsight on the right of this area so it is much easier to carry pads through now. I have a feeling that this will become a classic for getting first timers into the feel of Jville highballs.
