Comments: I had some trouble at the roof, up and down, but once I saw how to do it went down nicely. It all protects pretty well, one #4 useful for the layback finish.

Comments: P2 has a short but definitely solid 10a section. Continuing after the dihedral go slightly right then back left to the lunch ledge pine-tree for a full pitch. Rap from there or finish on one of the many variations to the top.

Comments: Done in two pitches, very awkward in the dihedral, I was under-cling fist-jamming, whatever that is.

Comments: Did the crux over the bush, got to the slab and saw the rusty 1/4in bolt, no thanks. Contrived to go up the slab anyway.

Comments: I skipped the first pitches, just scrambled to The Jungle, didn't seem to be any rave reviews for the first two pitches. The $ pitch seemed pretty easy and short for 10a.

Comments: Would say going this way was 5.5 while staying in the dihedral appeared (and I've heard) to be 5.8-ish.

Comments: Forget just linking 1+2, with a few feet of simul-climbing and a 70m you can link all the way to lunch ledge.

Comments: This is one of the best in Idyllwild! Topo is a bit outdated in the vogel book, no pin on p2, new bolt.

SPOILER ALERT!

Traverse directly right at the final bolt on p2, hands on two small black knobs, then breathe for a heady 5.6 runout, no pro after that bolt.

Comments: A little gardening and no pro coming out of The Jungle, but it shapes up quickly, fun if you've done all the other moderates on the wall.

Comments: Of course JJ, I'm open to all interpretations as long as there's a line of reasoning behind it. Unfortunately lots of folks don't know why they believe what they believe.

Live as you will, argue for fun, climb forever.

Comments: I understand prying may be a "fact of life" but where is the line drawn? My personal rule, stated elsewhere on this intellectual pit of a website is that if you can't take it off by hand, then leave it alone.

Comments: FINALLY a little controversy back in WI! Bolting is lame, chopping is lame. My advice: Man up and PUKE!

Comments: This route is very "meh". Yea, good 5.7...for about 20ft and that's it. It's really just an alternative finish to the Trough.

Comments: Good route, the slab 4th pitch was a nice cherry, save for the rivet! Replace all bolts, place one next to a crack but don't replace the rivet? I wonder the logic. Regardless, thanks for the new bolts, there's a few spicy moves.

Comments: Never really exposed and only a few moves of 5.6 between ledges. Simul'd it but it probably would have been safer to solo. Remember to go right of Pee Wee and more to the left higher up for the easiest pitches.
