Comments: Fantastic TR with tricky exit for short people. Fun puzzle route.

TR bolts are best accessed with an anchored handline or even on belay from the flat part os the cap rocks. The edge that the TR runs over is a little sharp and merits watching. Strawberry Jam off the same anchor is very fun and of a different nature.

Comments: The "walk off" is more akin to the Class 4 downclimb from the north end of the The Blob- some pretty committing moves that could or should be belayed for first time climbers. We climbed down the boulder prow almost directly north, crux being a skinny body chimney that required some arm bars to wiggle feet and hips lower down.
Then again, if you're climbing this JTree chimney, you're probably not a real "first time" climber. Easy rating, but any JTree chimney takes a good amount of experience to ... more >>

Comments: No bolts up top but a large boulder with lots of old rope and webbing around it. Build your own anchor (gear to 3 inches) then rappel off the giant boulder at the end of the day.

Comments: Rusty quarter inch bolts don't inspire confidence. Found on a wall with multiple bolts (false starts or old projects?).Climbs up left side of this wall. 40m climb means no top roping. Bolts were drilled by someone tall- hard for me at 5'6" to reach two of the four bolts from a safe stance.
I finished up RIGHT, not following the original line-great natural anchor up top right.
Rappelled down to Pitchfork slings, then second rap to base of Pitchfork.

Comments: Starts up the right facing corner of the "Gangsta Wall" and climbs up to crack above. Climb with one 60m rope, bolts up top, mid rappel station allows rappel with one rope. Shares start with bolted face route California Love (5.9)

Comments: Easily identified by the mini-roof just past the first bolt, no other climbs around have a 2 foot overhang to climb over. Great fun route for 5.6 leaders!

Comments: Climbed both face style and as a chimney. VERY different climbs. You are encouraged to do both- the chimney start is best a few feet inside, not right at the entrance.

Comments: Very well bolted and anchored- all in a line with anchor directly above start. Anchors are a little high above ledge for 5'6".

Comments: According to the Guidebook, Color Coded Quickdraws has 5 bolts and is now the third line of bolts from the right, the second anchor set from the right on the Ort Wall.

Comments: A tremendous route to practice unprotected runout chimney climbing. So secure in a wide chimney you don't need protection, great practice for more committing chimneys.

Comments: This climb and others nearby have 3/8" bolts and modern hangers. Gear is not necessary. Bolts are about 30 feet apart. The belay stations are close (half pitch apart) so you can link them to save time with a 60m rope, then rappel with just one rope! Yeah!

Comments: The climb called Knobby Wall is LEFT OF SURPRISE (the wide offwidth). Two 3/8 inch bolts with Fixe hangers are atop the climb.

Can be a hard start for such a low rated climb.

Comments: One of my new favorite routes. The supposed 5.8 start to the beginning of P2 did not feel that hard in the dry days of August at 11am. Fantastic friction for the feet meant I just needed to slot hands for a place the hold, looks like a lieback but not strenuous for me. Lots of great nut placements in the small range. Great pro, great rock, secure climbing and holds, just a fun route. Rappel on one 60m rope (three raps, 1 bolt station with rap hangers 2 with chains)
Route (east facing) was in the... more >>

Comments: Not worth the hype.
The climbing was unremarkable and the high number of rotten flakes meant that I trusted only about 3 pieces of pro per pitch. I was comfortable on the climb, but the poor rock condition greatly diminished any "classic" value this has. Many better climbs on the East Wall.

Comments: Great climb with many interesting roofs in the final pitches. Guidebook (Supertopo) lists 5 pitches to the top, we linked 2-3 and 4-5 for a fantastic climb, a lot of fun with a variety of moves and rock. Final pitch was dirty, short 5th class, then 4th, belayed off the Juniper on the summit.
I agree with Lars Johnson that pitch 4 is a lot of fun. If you are climbing on Hogwild after this, then rappel is OK. Otherwise, save the time and just climb out and walk down to the campground or the Leap ... more >>

Comments: The variety of cracks- fingers, hands, fists, a traverse, all in short sections of 20 feet or so,- and the roof pull on solid pro and jams make this route an absolute joy. At two short pitches it is not too much of a commitment, either, short enough to keep things fun and enjoyable. A great climb! Belaying from the tree is recommended, even comfortable.
Two ropes to rappel, 60m ropes will get you down to the first 3rd class bench from the chain anchors. The 10b slab climb to the left of the rout... more >>
