Even though I put the route up, I feel it to be a bit contrived(sp)...

I do not believe it to be 60ft...

More like 40-45...

I think it's pretty good, but still kinda crunchy!

Damn, 5 bolts in 40-45 feet, at 5.7, where were you 20 years ago when I first started climbing at JTREE?

This is a fine, short warmup route and a friendly, comfortable intro to JTree slab for your newb friends.

Not a bad route to get the kinks out. I liked it.

I was there yesterday (2/22/09) and three of the bolts have been removed (the second and fifth bolts remain). Makes it a tad more interesting. :-) Anyone know who did that? Even though I loved the extra bolts, it's now more of a typical JT route.

Granted this route may have been over-bolted, but it could have been a refreshing alternative for someone strapped leading at that grade. Now were left with yet another 30ft. tall hole riddled embarassment, barely worth the attention of the seasoned climber, yet not worth dying over for the budding leader.

Yes I know who did the "CHOP" job...

I admit...

It was a wee bit OVERBOLTED...

I may go back and do a little repair job...

It originally had only 3 anyway...(the middle 3)

Would have been fun on lead if the was three or four bolts, but I'll pass
