Comments: Leading the crux was exciting. I'm glad I left this until I really felt solid leading J Tree 5.7, as this is one of the harder ones of that grade I've encountered.

Comments: Conditions as of 3.3.2012: plenty of postholing to get to the base of the climb, and the first 1/3 of a pitch or so had significant snow. Past that, what small patches of snow their were did not interfere with the climbing!

Comments: A great intro to multipitch, as advertised! We ended up taking the 5.3 variation (heading up and the right, around an overhang to some easy mantling) at the finish- the 5.1 looked scarier from the belay! We took the Vogel/Gaines guidebook and managed to stay essentially on route the whole time, save a small unintentional variation (5.6?) on P4.

Comments: I had a lot of fun on this. I would say it is indeed in the 5.4 - 5.5 range but that rating assumes you can do fist jams - a great place to practice those! Protection wasn't completely trivial but I mostly found it when I needed it.

Comments: Loved this climb. The little traverse at the start demands attention, but after that it's great fun with all kinds of chimney moves and a little easy slab section at the end. Our guidebook said many people skip the second pitch, which is a shame, as it's as much fun if not more than the first, and the ledge you belay from is practically a helipad. As many have noted, big cams are nice to have ( I recall being glad to have a #4 camalot at one point on the first pitch, and the second pitch h... more >>

Comments: Very easy, but my partner did her first outdoor lead here to practice! I solo'd up afterwards to clean it. All low angle with abundant holds. Loose like the rest of the crag.

Comments: Lots of fun! Probably easier than 5.8, though, due to the wild abundance of holds.

Comments: Lots of fun! The crux is at the bottom. The upper section is a bit dirty. Note that the (climber's) righthand bolt in the anchor is loose.

Comments: Lots of fun! The climbing is consistent over a good distance, lots of places to rest, and the bolts seem reasonably spaced (I only used one piece of gear, a #2 cam behind the big flake as high as I could reach before starting up it), but it still feels serious when you're at my level (just getting into leading 5.6-5.7 leading).
