4 out of 5 stars Perfect Fingers

With Josh J. from Vegas. The easiest "classic" 5.10a I have led at Jtree, assume that has something to do with it being a younger route. Did it as the sun went down and its position gave me a spectacular sunset! Also ran into some bats in the upper portion where it jogs right. I used a Metolius 00 and off set nut to protect the start which I suppose is the crux to the route.

4 out of 5 stars Perfect Finger Crack

Excellent route, on par with Illusion Dweller and just about any other Joshua Tree climb at the grade. Do it!

I found the crux to be the thin stuff near the start (blue TCU protects), although the climb is fairly sustained throughout. The tilted chimney looks really awkward from the ground, but some good edges on the face make it easier. Bring some hand to fist size gear for the anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Whose fingers...?

Nice fingercrack for about 20 feet. Also some tips crack, some rattly fingers, and a chimney for good measure. Sweet climb.
