2 out of 5 stars Clean and Jerk

I consider this the hardest 5.10 I have climbed at Jtree to date. Miramonte’s guide discusses a “bouldery and run out start” which is obviously the crux of the climb. A crash pad would be handy on this one. There are a couple of horizontal placements including a C4#2 down low that semi protects the 2nd and 3rd moves. Once in the crack above, it is strenuous, but enjoyable hands and fingers to the roof. The FA version goes right which is sort of a sliding chimney deal. Best to bring the 2nd up on this one and scramble down climbers left.

4 out of 5 stars Tough

I like pumpy, steep stuff but this was really hard (much harder than the 10d around the west face). Think I did some sections wrong but this still felt very hard for the grade. Can be very cold here.

3 out of 5 stars Stiff warm-up

I was nearly frozen solid while belaying back in this windy spot, I wasn't sure if the moves would go as I couldn't feel my fingers or move my body well ;) It's a great climb, though, ideal for a warmer, non-windy day.
