40 feet of perfect finger locks give way to 40 more feet of delicate hand jams. Personally, this makes my short list of great moderate cracks.

3 out of 5 stars 200 Motels

Nice couple of walls in this area. We hit these routes on return from climbing Firewater Chimney, perhaps the best route in Jtree. Both of these 5.8 climbs, given high accolades in Miramonte's book, deserve same. 200 Motels follows the right crack, the next one to the right, at the top of the chimney start. A 70m makes it down from a slung rap. Good stuff.

5 out of 5 stars Great sustained crack

The approach takes a little while. Can TR from a gear anchor at the top of this climb. Walk off is easily done through the gully to the right.
