Did this route as one pitch. Pretty good moves, but the descent is almost as difficult hehe.
Great send! One of my first routes at JT.
As far as HeyJoe says, don't worry about it! There is AMPLE opportunity to plug in bomber peices, this is a PERFECT route to learn the technique on. Looks like you did well.
If you have a few sizes to 4" i would recommend White Lightning - about the same difficulty, with a wide crack crux down low. There are hidden holds that make the offwidth really easy. Plus, its like 140 feet, so you feel a little bit more of a topout than at the thin wall :D
Oh by the way -- Almost never bother taping up for Joshua Tree. Rarely are you actually JAMMING - as you probably noticed in this climb. Its more pinching the outside flares of well featured cracks. Save the tape for the jamcracks!
I highly recommend a climb called Blue Suede Shoes.
The idea of soloing that gives me the heebie jeebies. that big move above the bolt always seems desperate, couldn't imagine doing it without a rope.
to down climb he has to walk off to the right then down solo this super hideous jingus 11- offwidth. the bolts are always chopped so you HAVE to downclimb it, so really soloing the 10b isn't so hard.
Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. Looks like they did the right thing. Did you see the size of that sucker? Probably weighed five or six tons. If a car jack could move it, it wasn't solid, trust me. Car jacks aren't the jaws of life.
I think people are forgetting that rocks fall down on their own (gasp!). Its actually pretty common. And considering that the poster said its in a remote location, and they OBVIOUSLY would have checked to make sure they had a clear blasting zone... no harm no foul. Thanks for putting in the work to keep people safe.
beautiful line, great composition, sweet pants... a lot to like in this one! thanks dood, post moar!
wow, thats a lot of loose stuff for a route that is climbed as often as it is. Sweet video!
Sweet, thanks for sharing!
