I had an anally slow "teacher" but I finally got to climb the stupid thing before the sun went down.

Confused why Miramonte calls this "sandbagged" and "awkward". I really good 5.8, but not sandbagged in my opinion. Easier than the Flake for example. The (intended) start is sort of a slab reach dyno thing if you are short, but well protected. The rest is secure jams. Better than Double Cross in my opinion...prob an overlooked route due to the guide book comments. Worth doing with Sexy Grandma, Double Cross and Orphan for a solid four routes in the sun.

Climbed Toe Jam which was a fun route and Double Cross which rightly deserves its classic status. I don't know why people are spooked by this route unless you don't know how to jam. Double Start, which is right next to Double Cross is a decent alternative if waiting in line.

Little stupid fall at the start of Dogleg. Sort of a reach off the ground. Double Cross is awesome!

There was a loose jug at the start of Dogleg. When I did it, I know the hold was a gonner. I haven't done Dogleg since that hold fell off. The start is now way harder, and the fall pretty bad into that hole.

Toe Jamb: One of my first leads ever at Josh
Double Cross: Backed off from this one once after seeing a guy hit the deck from the top of Trashcan rock. Spooked me for the rest of the day. Came back a second time and had a blast.

What happened to the guy who fell from the top of Trashcan Rocks? Did he make it?

Yeah, he was setting up a toprope for his two sons, and slipped while yanking on a wad of webbing. I actually felt the impact in the soles of my feet when he landed about 20 feet from me.
He of course went into shock, and impacted his elbow joint, maybe fractured, the swelling was spectacular. He also cracked at least one rib, but overall, he seemed Ok, no internal or head injuries apparantly. Wife drove him out of the park after my nurse\wife gave him a good going over.
The worst part was the hysteria from his sons as they heard and saw him fall, but didn't see him land.
