A stellar line and area classic. Probably one of the best 10s in the area, if not THE best.
Very first route on the leftmost side of the crag. Would be hard to miss as it's one of the only climbs on the Main Wall thats less than overhung!
6 bolts to anchors.

One of the best climbs in the canyon regardless of the grade.

Deidre replaced one of the two shut anchors on 3/31/07 but the other is still worn and needs replacement. This route gets a lot of traffic. Please on this route and all routes - do not run the rope directly through the anchor for toproping or lowering. Use quickdraws for TR and have the last person fish through and rappel.

A quibble with the OP's wording: I would not characterize Genesis as "less than overhung". Maybe "less overhung" was the intent? Regardless, a fine route I find more pumpy than many of the 11s in Jacks.

Needs washing and scrubbing as it's getting slimy. Fun nonetheless.
