4 out of 5 stars A fun TR

Four of us had a nice day at BHMG - perfect weather and had the place to ourselves. Got clean on TR w/ the 10d direct start, and doing both finishes. This looks like it would be a scary lead with tricky pro. Go right at the top bulge to enjoy the finishing crack. Going left is doable, but harder and less cracky.

3 out of 5 stars Hairball even on TR

Climbed this on top-rope. Looked too sketchy to lead and sunlight was fading fast. As it was, I was rapping in a hurry. Took us over four hours to find this area. Walked out in the dark under moonlight. Good to do the hardest approach first.

5 out of 5 stars Good thing I top roped it

Did the 10d start, felt accomplished getting to the top without falling. It's a strenuous route and it looked like it would take a lot of effort to protect it properly. The guy who led it took a fall high up but his pro held just fine.

wouldn't even consider leading this thing- way too run-out with the crux coming before the bolt....

Very nice route. Did the direct start (10d per the book). Rockfall just occurred up high leaving some dirt and cruft in on area but still a fantastic route. Sports 5 bolts now, I dunno which is the original but 3 of them are within 10' or so of each other. blech.

Climbed the direct start and then took a left turn up the crack above the pin. I since learned that this direc tion was off route, but after taking a 20 footer on that old pin I was bound and determined to complete the line that way. I don't know if it was harder than 10d, but there is no pro at the top and the exit moves are at least 10b/c with 30 feet of air between you and the piton. I heard that the route was retro bolted and that bolts were added and that is a shame considering that it is a J-Tree Trad route and it SHOULD be scary.
