Flake  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this route, quite varied for Jtree. Ran the roof out which protected well with a #3 C4 at the top. Follow easy cracks up to the face. Pass a couple of spinners on the upper face. With Joe K, finishing out a day out in Wonderland.

Little bit of everything  Sucess!

After getting turned away by the long line at the base on several occasions, I finally got a chance to climb this. Well worth doing.

Loved it  Sucess!

The last part my first intro to steep friction and I remember thinking, wait, this is blank. But it goes.

Cool!  Sucess!

Did this route twice...always as 1 pitch.
Intimidating the first time, a breeze the second time.

Rewarding  Sucess!

A truly satisfying route. I think the hardest part is the first 10 feet. The chimney can be intimidating and scary until you can up away from the deck on a safety net of gear. I did it late in the day and enjoyed a sunset from the top.

Very good climb  Sucess!

This is a very good climb for the rating and as the page says, several techniques are needed to get up it. This is one of my favorite climbs at J Tree, have done it several times over the years. Recommended.
