Comments: Don't let the 5.7 fool you, this is very strenuous. I followed this classic and it's a typical old school Robbins sandbag.I was pretty gassed when it was over.Not for fledgling 5.7 leaders.

Comments: Dubious crack climb that would rank 3 stars if it were about 80ft. longer. Great gear placements with one or two tricky moves. Pretty solid and great for J-Tree beginners.

Comments: Not really that hard, more about cool photo opps than asthetic climbing. Go do Headstone instead.

Comments: Hell yeah! Classic beyond words, believe the hype. Great straight forward jamming crack with excellent gear placements throughout the pitch, nice upper moves with excellent exposure. Simply and awesome climb anywhere.Don't forget to tape your hands or risk the cheese grater.

Comments: Fun, worth doing but not that memorable. There are some short and sweet moves, but it's basically your typical J-Tree watershute climb.

Comments: A solid 5.7 in my opinion. Bitchin stairway type footholds with nice transfer moves to the next set of stairs with a commiting move to easier ground. Be mindful of your anchors at the top as the rock is quite chossy and untrustworthy. Long slings around the boulders at the top for the anchors are defintely reccomended.

Comments: Better as a toprope.The crack gets sandy and the pro can be dubious and tricky. Quite steep for a 5.8 and the final moves are a mutha!

Comments: I did it on a toprope and found it to be fun, not impossible for a 10a (I've done harder 5.7's in J-Tree).The flake is quite strenuous but positive all the way. The upper 10a face is devious but not difficult. I wouldn't lead it unless you're proficient at leading 10's as the fall factor could render broken bones.

Comments: Hard to believe that this is even a route, we third classed this as it's a waste of time to uncoil the rope for this one.

Comments: Nice slabby climb, not really a 5.7 if you're proficient in slab climbing. Not nearly as exciting as Jaws or Lickety Splits, but has value as far as adding to your route list.

Comments: Fun climb on tricky but positive jugs and a nice crack. Sucks up the pro nicely and seems to be a crowd pleaser.Definately worth climbing.Easy walk off.

Comments: Classick!!! Killer runout to the top of the cave with intense claustrophobic chimneying with a sweet traverse to a great overhang. Love this climb!

Comments: Totally fun route. Nice finger jams and laybacking.Killer pro placements. The runout face is a blast(nice and scoopy), scary but not impossible. Great way to toprope The Classic Diamond Dogs and the runout Zardoz.

Comments: Can't reccomend this one, very unpleasant crack climbing with tricky and dubious pro placements. Not reccomended for begining leaders and a boring top rope.Go and do Lickety Splits instead.

Comments: Scary runout, not for the weak at heart, I was lucky, my brother(rather boldly) lead the route whilst i followed.

Comments: Great climb, this is about as close as it gets to a Tahquitz experience at J-Tree. I've done it twice and have always left feeling very satisfied. All three pitches hold their own in variety and asthetics. Pitch 2 is one hell of a weird experience, never comfortable (think offwidth chimney) but fun none the less.I need to lose weight so I can get my butt back on this climb.

Comments: Avoid rappeling on the "Cryptic"/"S.W. Corner" side of the rock. My rope got stuck and resulted in free soloing S.W. Corner(Including a foot slip at the overhang) to free my rope.Killer route, one of the best indeed.
