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

onsight TR. Would NOT want to lead that route! Fun easy climbing between two cool cruxes.

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.
