The elusive trailhead. Note the cairn at the bottom of the screen. Several hundred feet past the gate on the right.

Comments: good as a beginner lead, especially if your foot/fist jamming could use some practice

Comments: stoubie is so right on. the final haul is difficult to protect and you might find yourself run out to the finish.

Comments: Challenging jams in the middle. Key right toe halfway up on face. Great way to break down crack jamming form.

Not sure why pro is listed here. I would have just liked a crash pad.

Comments: most of the holds are slopey and open, so pick the one that sucks the least and keep moving! crux is definitely a little exposed.

Comments: After clipping into the 3rd bolt, be very conscious of where you're going to swing as you move left. A large rock at your back poses a very serious ass-busting hazard once you make it a few feet out.

Comments: Immediately to the left of Moonshiner. Crux is getting to the shuts. Very vertical and poor hands/feet

Comments: My first outdoor lead. Good everything to last bolt, then a less-than-solid move to the right, then a big mantle on to the tiny shelf that is the end of the route.

Comments: So it was my first trip up there and I was looking for the shoes that were still on my feet. I finally realized this after a few minutes and the guy doing Jam Crack right next to us, with a glint of knowing in his eye, says, "Sounds like it's gonna be a REALLY good adventure."

Fun climb, anyone could do it high.
