Comments: Incredible route. I literally had a euphoric buzz for an hour after climbing it. One of the best pitches at the creek or anywhere.

Comments: Kind of ironic the first comment is about this route being the cleanest in the bridgerjacks and the rest is about a guy who got hurt (glad everything seems to be okay for you! Hopefully everything is good a few years on) pulling a chunk of rock out of it. It's just a reminder that climbing at the Bridgerjacks is not the same as climbing at the creek, even on the cleanest of lines.

Comments: A pretty contrived route. I found myself consistently annoyed that the natural line wasn't anywhere close to the bolts, especially on the first pitch. Not sure why it sees the traffic it does, other than the fact it's so closely bolted.

Comments: I think if you are tall and have beefy fingers then the start is not hard. I can see why it would give others problems though.

Comments: Awesome route, but it's probably the easiest 5.11 in J-Tree.

Comments: Such a cool experience. A cool hike and an awesome climb. Sharp, mean and nasty, just like my ex-wife.

Comments: I don't think bringing a rope does much does much for this route. We soloed it, but I didn't see anywhere to place gear while doing it. It's easier to down-solo than go up and probably safer than rapping off some suspect weathered slings. The only reason I could see to bring a rope would be to belay a very inexperienced climber up to give them the experience.

On a side note it is a rad and unique experience.

Comments: Rocktown is rad. We came here on a long road trip expecting to stay for a few days and stayed for a month and a half. Some of the best bouldering in America.

Comments: C'mon. What if he has a seizure? If you spend your time worrying about these things, maybe you should take up badminton or something.

Comments: You can also walk off/scramble down the back side of it. Pretty cool and mellow and safe.

Comments: It's cool, but you better plan on going fast, those are 20 long pitches. A lot of the route is simulable.

Comments: I've climbed this route a few times and I think it's one of the best routes anywhere. Last I did it I was going up the first pitch and loving it, only to remember that every other pitch on the thing was even better. Can't say enough about it. The only downside is that the hike sucks, but it's totally worth it.

Comments: I kind of think whoever did the slot moves first really should get credit for the first ascent. Definitely the Chimney is the natural line though, and pretty rad in it's own right but the real business is the slot. My buddy Clay and I went and check it out the other day, he sent and I followed. I'll try to get a good picture of it sometime next week when I go for the send. It's a rad line, a real unique OW slot testpiece.

Comments: What a rad and incredibly aesthetic line. Even without the beautiful splitter it has rad climbing on it. I'm not so sure on difficulty, I've climbed a lot in Indian Creek and I think 5.9+ is a fair grade on this. Probably harder if you did the insanity of lying it back.

Comments: Wouldn't complain if someone put in an anchor. It's pretty good climbing, pulling through the surprisingly solid death block roof is somewhat unnerving.

Comments: Pretty sustained 5.10 climbing broken up by good rests to a distinct, fairly hard 5.11 crux. Totally awesome route. One of the best granite finger cracks anywhere. Anywhere. Seriously. It rules.

Comments: The best climb at Donnelly, one of the best line in the whole creek. Just fantastic.

Comments: I broke a lot of holds on the second pitch, although the climbing is fairly reasonable for the grade I wasn't so sure that the rock was solid enough to hold any of my gear. It's worth it though to get to the money 60 meter dihedral of the third pitch.
