4 out of 5 stars Dirty Surprise

This is a decent route, tall and varied. Not the best rock in Jtree. Surprise Wall does not get much sun first thing in Jan or Feb. An interesting flared stemming move gets you over a bulge to an easy hand crack. Crux for me was a slab move protected by a small piece right below the top, some folks (saw chaulk) might break out right, but the move above the crack was pretty cool. A 70m barely makes the rap, but does. With Chad from CA.
