This route has four bolts, not three. All four are easily seen from the bottom. There is nothing to lower from on the anchor bolts, but it is easy to walk up or down to climber's right.

Bolt count corrected in the route description - thanks for the catch, Jay.

This route may be easy, but the movement is fun, and it seems worth doing. It is not easy to approach so likely will not get done often. It is worth doing if you are in the area.

The route is a great first lead climb. As previously stated, movement throughout the climb is fun. However, the route is not very accessible. We tried to take our pup along with us. We managed but will probably not attempt to take him again. Wish they would get some better trails running through here!

Niki Hall -- a large group of volunteers has been working with JeffCo Open Space to punch in a new access trail from below for all the Upper Tiers areas, including Jericho. In fact, the trail should more or less brush the bottom of Jericho on its way to the main upper wall. Volunteer days are happening on the 4th Saturday of every month til Oct. or so, and the next one is this Saturday! You can sign up here: offero.jeffco.us/ActivityRegis...
