5 out of 5 stars exciting route

This is a great gorge route. Very exciting and a beautiful line. Enjoy the top out chimney! It's a J-Tree 5.9 for sure.

5 out of 5 stars New Favorite

This is my new favorite route at the Gorge. It was fairly consistent the whole way through with the crux on the section above the ledge. I guess you can TR it as well. Totally sweet all around. This might actually be more of a 10a though.

This route is a bitch; it'll give you a good idea of what old school 5.9 is all about.
Flaring off-hands crack (for me) w/ soapy face on the right. Tops out w/ a dirty, birdshit encrusted chimney. Rap anchor at the top.
Enjoy!
