With Megan B. Marc does not have this route listed, but shares the same start as Freeway, then moves up and left. I did not find this route run out as the guide suggests. Neither is it 100’ as the guide suggests or the FAer’s did not find the cool finish to it. In any regard, it shares the same start as Freeway, then traverses up and left, all well below grade. You can get sucked into a chossy left facing corner (left side of the chimney), but before you reach that corner, look for a steep varnished crack up the arete to the left. Follow this fun crack as it heads into the upper section of the before mentioned corner to a shoulder ledge. From the ledge, sling a horn and make an exposed step right up on the well featured face. Follow these jugs and eventual crack to the top of the formation. Descend by stepping down in the chimney and scrambling down north, then west to a col and descend the boulder strewn gully back to the base of the route. Single to #3, mostly slings, haul shoes for the descent. Dow
With Megan B. An excellent sport route at the grade. The local guide could have been more generous with the star rating compared to other bolted routes at the grade in Jtree. Miramontes guide has it as mixed, but it is fully bolted. You can place one piece of gear before your first bolt if you would rather, but the climbing to that bolt is below the grade. The crux is an obvious side pull balance move half way up at a slight bulge. If you don’t balance your left foot just right on a step up, it will be hard to make the adjustment as you reach for a positive right hand. Easy ground from there up to the fixed rap. Half a dozen draws. Dow
With Liddy. Very good long pitch, a bit easy for the grade. Cake Walk worth doing here as well. Pleasant approach.
