4 out of 5 stars Bird on Fire

More challenging than any 5.10b or 10c I have led at Jtree. Gets a ton of sun by mid May....wait until late afternoon or evening that late in the year. All fixed gear had been removed for the start (2013). I came in from the right and thought that was heady climbing to my first piece. This finger crack will eat up tons of small gear. The crux is the bulge, getting your feet in right sequence will be critical. Finally get a hand jam after several meters of hard thoughtful climbing for this grade. With Alfred from CA.

4 out of 5 stars Absolutely awesome

Love this route, felt kind of easy for the grade, but I think JTRee easy routes are actually just hard... (Not a true onsight, belayer got the rope stuck and I had to wait a few minutes for them to fix things... Otherwise it went down easy)
