5 out of 5 stars None.

We were not sure whether the arrete was in or not at the beginning of the route but it goes quite well without. Still got to red-point this one...

3 out of 5 stars Also good to warm up.

Shorter than adjacent Climb B, plenty of holds.

3 out of 5 stars Muddy start.

Looks easier than it is with deceptive crack that isn't good for jamming. Footholds at start were dirty with earth, probably from recent rain; not a bad idea to have brushes and plenty of chalk handy.

4 out of 5 stars Most rewarding route we tried at JBSP!

Fun sequence needing good footwork. First third of the route starts with a hang and a high right foot followed by left hand side pull that faces outward. Has a couple of good pockets to choose from in the following moves. Second third, goes leftward to a medium sized ledge followed by the crux - a 3 finger left-hand pocket and a mono with very little but smearing for the feet. Last third of the route quite easy with a huge pinch that made us real happy on top!

3 out of 5 stars Straightforward

Access from right hand side of the cave, between the large boulder and the tree. 5.9 if using the facing boulder; a 5.10 without the big boulder. Note: the start footholds were rather dirty...
