BETA PHOTO: Herbies Horror is on the angled face to the right ...
Start to the right of the Jam Crack slab but before you get into the chimney on the right. Just to the right of the detached flake. The holds are small and crimpy and good footwork is in order. It gets a little thinner at the very top.
Between Jam Crack and Chockstone Chimney. Basically just left of the chimney area after Jan's Face in the Jungle Cliff area.
Top rope. Lots of webbing required as usual
Hanging out on the Horror.

The Open Book, the Royal Robbins route in Tahquitz, gets credit for being the first 5.9 route. But doesn't this predate that by at least 10 years?

Yep! It definitely predates Open Book by 5 years. Until I see other evidence, this is the first 5.9 in the country!
