5 out of 5 stars Wanna Bong

With Josh J. from Vegas. A fantastic route, off-width just does not get its due at Jtree for some reason. I used two C4#3's, and a #4-#6 for the upper portion. This pitch is fantastic how it starts out .75 and goes to #6 at the top. As the off-width starts to get a bit burly, face the left wall and stem and chimney up the rest of the way. We moved a slung rap off the east side to the very top of this route (keep going up left) and slung a feature there, 70m no worries.

2 out of 5 stars Burly offwidth

This moves from a fist jam to a gnar gnar offwidth. If you are good with offwidths, you should be fine. I, on the other hand need practice so this felt more like a 5.11. Oh, and then I wanted to barf after I was done.
