3 out of 5 stars Gem

With Liddy. One of my favorite Jtree settings. Fun climb with a short crux off the deck. You can walk off either way. The east is a bit more technical but shorter.

4 out of 5 stars Cool location

Nice crack but hard to belay from the top. Lots of friction on the rock and anchoring is pretty far behind you.
