Joe Monks pulling down on the cool holds.
This is not a typical route at Rushmore. There are a lot of really interesting large features to use. This is the route on the left. Start up the route past the first bolt to an overhange. Traverse right a couple of feet on big holds. Reach up and pinch/lieback on a large fin/flake. Continue up on large holds until you get the last bolt (6th bolt). Continue up the easy slab to the anchors. Note, this route shares the 6th bolt and anchors with Fintastic.
This is the left side route on the first formation in the North Park area.
6 bolts plus anchors.
Fun steep athletic route. Definitely not technical...

Unless I'm missing something, I would consider the crux move past the roof a 5.9 at least. Everything else is at most 5.8 but this is the hardest climb I have ever done for the given 5.8 rating. Still fun though.

Agreed. I think this depends on height and climbing style. Some people actually think Fintastic is harder than Just Jugs. To me Fintastic was a soft 7 and Just Jugs a full-blown 5.9. JJ is really not my style though...
