Description:

Start to the right of the obvious roof, on the highly textured face and head for the V cracks. Take the right crack to finish which can be ominous due to the inability to see it 'til you are on it. Bring up the second and top out the pinnacle with a short belay to the top. Rap rings off the back/north side.

4 out of 5 stars With JQ

Fun first pitch, easy to place pro. Set belay at the bolt (thanks for leaving the carbiner, I did the same at the rappel bolt). Second pitch feels ominous, but very solid up to the pinnacle.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route.

Fun route. Did it in 3 pitches due to rope drag, and not knowing what lay ahead. Fun for a beginner trad climber - a bit of exposure, and some solid placements that need some long runners to deal with rope drag. There is a single bolt where the 5.9 crack goes left and the 5.6 traverses right. I used this as a first belay point.

4 out of 5 stars It was nice way to begin my weekend!

Nice way to start up on J-Tree. I lead all 3 pitches.

Pitch 1: Super easy climbing.
Pitch 2: Nice traverse to crack climbing. Make sure to use long runners or you will face serious rope drag.
Pitch 3: One slab move puts you into nice little crack. Go all the way to the chain to belay.
