3 out of 5 stars First climb at Jtree this year

This was hard. Chimney up top was hard for me, I don't ever ever climb chimney. Crack was hard, alas I am not a crack climber either. Gunks horizontals rule!

Onsight Onsight ascent by: douglaskinsman on 2012-01-14 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars A struggle to the finish

but a fun OW struggle. Some calssic jamming leads to what should be considered the real crux. Nothing larger than a 4 required.

Second Second ascent by: 205asobotka on 2012-01-16 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars toes

followed this barefoot thinking it was more like 5.6, i was wrong. the off width definitely would've been easier had i been able to actually smear. on the bright side, i discovered that barefoot jamming isn't nearly as painful as one would guess
