Jet Screamin' Hooter Queens 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  ID : Black Cliffs : Tall Cliffs
This route offers a unique contrast between its lower and upper sections. Scramble up some broken choss for ~20 feet until you can step up and clip. The technical crux comes at and above bolt 2 with stems and side-pulls leading to a somewhat difficult third clip. After this, the route steepens and offers great movement between spaced, positive holds all the way to the top.Have your belayer watch you closely through the crux as you end up a bit above bolt 2 with the choss ledge not far below....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
