Obvious line directly below tuning fork Spruce tree. An easy start to the first bolt, then a tricky crux with a shallow mono pocket to crank on will bring you to easier climbing between 2nd and 3rd bolts then another thin crux section up the vertical face to finish. Arête near the top can be used to make the route 10c.


The amazing line in the center of jester wall.


5 bolts, 2 raprings

A little history on the route as I have the FFA. The original way I did it had the crux at the start using the very crappy shallow mono. I used the arête at the top and graded it 5.11 a or b. I went on it onsight and just climbed it. After that many people found better beta at the crux to the right where you skip the mono beta altogether. This is where the downgrade comes from. I think the route is now a 5.10c. Not using the arête at the top would be ridiculous as it's right there. Eliminates are made for the gym. It's always the path of least resistance that prevails outside.
