a hard reachy start leads to much easier climbing. Shares the top two bolts with El Gancho

4 out of 5 stars A J-tree 8

Very difficult start for an 8 deserving of a 9 rating (unless of course, you're in J-tree in which case this might be considered a 7 - lol). After the first bolt, the route turns into an easy 5.6, but the first move requires finess, confidence, and (if impatient) a little powering up while smearing. Fabulous jugs awaits after an initial shallow spider web crack system. Trust the tip of your fingers with some of the slightly wider crack and take a wide stance on your feet to leverage the double side pulls inwards using the cracks. After you reach the jug on your left, you are essentially scott free. Follow a series of jugs to the top.
