|J-Crack Slab Area
This route is right around the left arete from thinstone. This super-clean arete makes climbing thin the entire way. 2 cruxes make up the route, one being down low and one up top. Pre-clipping first bolt from thinstone is not a bad idea although that is a little tricky as well. In the picture it is the arete on the left. The bolts start on the left side and move over to the other side after 2.
Six bolts to the nut anchor off of toot. Might need to bring some nuts just in case anchor was stolen. I made up an anchor from Stretch marks(Nov 2002) with one good nut on the left crack and a sling on a flake, but could have been taken down.

FA: by Lawrence Steumpke. I remember on of the clips being extremely spooky with the potential of hitting the deck. I guess it was the third....Other then that it was a fun route.

No anchor. You'll have to continue to the pin and nut on Pear Buttress.
