Thin Wall  Sucess!

On my way to 1000 routes, I revisited the Thin Wall, only my 2nd time there as this is a gym climber magnet due to the ease of top roping these relatively easy and short Jtree routes. Butterfingers Make Me Horny, 5.8*, was a secure solo at the grade on good rock. You can set up a top rope by threading a boulder in the middle of this route and Chocolate is Better Than Sex, 5.9. Chocolate seemed no more difficult than Butterfingers. Almost Vertical, 5.7*, and Ain’t Nothing but a Jtree Thing, 5.6*, are two easy and secure solos for the grade. You can top rope both from medium gear atop Vertical if you set a directional for Jtree Thing. In the middle is a face climb with reachy holds for the grade, not a great solo candidate: The Face of Tammy Faye, 5.7*. None of the millennials around me knew who Tammy Faye was. Suppose that is a good thing. Perhaps why the youngsters are not as weary as religion as I am. Dow

Great Begginer area  Sucess!

Climbed "ain't nothin but a j-tree thing." I love that climb, but wish it was longer.

Good routes  Sucess!

Plenty of short easy routes to do with the typical easy J Tree approach.
