Lisa Barnes happy to be on the Horse again at JT


Chossy. With some cleaning, this could be a very nice route. Good moves on it. Short crux.


Approx 15' R of the pillar. Climbs a small roof, then follows a blunt arete (gear).


2 bolts + gear. Anchors at top with rings.

Didn't find this particularly 9+ .

This route is likely the second best on the wall, second to the Ranch Hand. The rooflet is nicely bolted and rock solid. Choose your starting slab plates with care, no penalty but some are sure to chip or detach all together. Another victim of grade creep, this route is grossly overrated... it's more like 5.8 at best.
