Comments: Beautiful brutality! I used a #5 C4 up high in the thrutching chimney. Stick with it!

Comments: Solid fun! Lots of no hands rests, crux is def the overhanging start.

Comments: V3 with a good landing. This is pretty tame using good technique. I would never bother to rope up on it, not even that tall!

Comments: Huh? 5.7? I don't think so, super easy all the way, no chimney moves required, jugs all the way.

Comments: Yea, ok climbing. Rope up the noobs on the approach as you pass under Farce. The fixed pin in the small blocky roof marks the start of the actual route. Couple of options to take above.

Comments: Because it doesn't follow the natural line. The natural line would be the path of least resistance, that's what I did at about 5.8. The traverse deliberately goes a different direction.

Comments: Total contrivance. I clipped the bolt and looked up on glorious jugs, under clings to the off-width corner, OR I could have done the actual 5.9 part by traversing down and right on some gnar slab. Why? Either way it's just a small variant of Left Ski Track.

Comments: I have since done the dihedral, it's pretty easy, 5.5 is about right.

Comments: Everyone seems to have a different way of doing this, along with exciting height and moves that require finesse this is a true standard of classic JT bouldering.

Also...HEY! Chill out with the tick marks!

Comments: Solid three stars, the bottom corner is the crux, keep the feet our right and your back against the left wall, coming out of the rest looks hard but isn't...commit.

Anchor bolts were good.

Comments: Solid fun, using the arete at the top is easier. The anchor is a good edition.

Comments: Solid 3 stars, gets harder the higher you get, bring the C4 #4.

Comments: A little run in the start, a small c3 would have helped maybe. Definite crux out of the pod, lay it back and commit. I could find a rap anchor, we rapped of an anchor behind the climb to the NW, with anal beads attached to it, yes I said "anal beads".

Comments: Before reading your comments I decided to down-grade to two stars, it's just not that good!

Comments: Not sure why this is "classic". Rock is suspect and greasy and the jams aren't fun.

Webbing on the anchor is bad, have your partner follow then traverse over to rap anchors on Black Diamond (two bolts up higher w/o rap rings, two bolts lower with rap rings).

Comments: Maybe 10a but definitely four stars, getting shut down is no reason to give it less stars.

Comments: Speaking of not doing the whole problem, I assumed matching on crack was the proper start, making this a two move wonder.

Comments: Less than par rock on the first part keeps this from being classic, watch out for the sucker jug above the crack, it will make a widow out of some pretty lady someday.

Comments: A must do. I found the mantle interesting but not awkward. Crux right at the last bolt and the run-out pretty tame. Make the right decisions on direction at the top and it's a breeze.
