1 out of 5 stars Effigy Too

The most difficult 5.10a I have done at Jtree and I have climbed over a hundred of them. Of course, it is just the cruxy start as is typical. I am not a boulderer or sport climber and there is definitely a specific sequence to follow before you can enter the crack above. A Metolious #0 can be placed from the ground, but then the route offers decking potential if you fail before your next placement. I am 5'11" and chose to use an insecure hand jam in a short flaring crack off left, right foot stemming up the obvious feature with a bounce to a finger ledge. One more pumpy move gets you to positive ground. The crack is straight forward after all that excitement. Walk off to the right.

felt soft for 10b, bouldery moves.... being a trad dad this might seem hard but being a gym rat no big deal.
