This is me on Waterboy a couple years ago. I think this is a link up from Waterboy to another climb. I am not 100% sure, but I think Waterboy end prematurely to the right and this extends it and makes it a much better route.

Comments: I am a hair under 5'8" and the climb was difficult but not too hard. I barely missed the onsight falling a couple times. My 5' girlfriend did not fair so well :/ haha

Comments: This was fun because we hit it after climbing Deviate (must climb and best approach for Geronimo IMO. I certainly wouldn't go really out of your way to do it unless you taking pics or something. Too short for the trouble alone.

Comments: I can't believe how fun this climb turned out to be. Must do for in camp fun. Gets one star, but I say it should get two. One for being super fun and one for being right in camp.

Comments: Yeah I feel this thing is harder than 10c. I led this last weekend 3/29/14 and had some troubles with it. I had been wanting to do it for a while and it was great. You are never looking at any substantial falls except at the first bolt but that is pretty much standard practice in J-Tree.

Comments: I'm a shade under 5'8" and the first move was no issue. The second move was proving to be more difficult, but I only gave it about 4-5 goes.

Comments: I don't agree with the X. I guess if you fell off the high side for sure. It just seems so improbable to fall off that side (unless you were trying to pimp out your facebook by hanging off that side for a photo and fell)and a fall on the shorter side would certainly not kill you. Perhaps I should revisit the definitions of PG13, R and X. I always thought of X as you can die and R you'll likely break something.

Comments: I used all the holds. Taller folk can definitely chuck for the finish jug but it is still hard that way too. It was also pretty hot this weekend and still went okay. Really GOOD

Comments: Arno just shared a photo post on Facebook by Jorgeson. He did it second go placing gear. No discrepancy on rating. Felt compelled to check the route out here on MP after seeing the post. Serious pay grade there.
