Climb up a broken series of flakes, blocks, and cracks on sharp jugs, sidepulls, and raspy handjams. Perhaps the route name comes from the jams, in which I left a little bit of skin.
The psychological crux is definitely between the last bolt and the chains when you must venture right, away from the jugs and from the cracks onto the face, with a potentially damaging fall beneath you. It may be the technical crux as well, although my partner thought a bit between the third and fourth bolts was harder (but I donít think he used any jams).
Fourth line of bolts from the right on Juniper Wall (third line if you are counting only the bottom bolts).
4 bolts, chain anchors

definitly a fun climb and contrary to the guidebook at this point it doesnt have any more loose rock than the rest of af. i didnt venture right but was able to clip the chains with a far stretch off a fingerlock in the crack, a taller person than 5'6" would'nt have any trouble.
