Jeremy Adkins at the Crux of Team Jesus 5.10

Description 

Great slab trad lead and a must do for those who consider themselves a slab climber.
Most of the route once you get out of the crack is sequency and follows little edges up to biger holds.

This is frequently toproped and seldom led due to the fall potential if you don't place good pro just under the crux (FYI place a #5 nut)


Location 

Just left of New River Gunks, just right of the distortionist, on huge flake.


Protection 

Good gear down low, 30 ft up it gets a bit runout, make sure to protect as high as you can off lower jugs just before the crux.

The 5.10a slab left of New River Gunks is pretty cool. Solid gear protects the crux and from experiance I know it will hold a fall or three. As I recall this climb is alittle easier fo tall folks.

Don't be afraid of this one! You can place a piece (or three) from a great stance and move through. Classic one-move wonder.

Don't let the gear deter you from leading this route. You are near the gear when making the crux move. A great route!

A fairly unimpressive 1 move wonder. Just cause you can climb it doesn't mean you can climb 10s on gear. In the olden days this would classify as a 5.9+.

The old days? Just drive a few hours south and this is a 5.8.

Fun route though.

Gray DMM Peenut protects the highest part of the crack before the "crux".

Good footwork made this route feel like 5.8. It's also no worse than PG, there's gear at your feet for the crux and then a short runout on 5.7 territory. Not a bad little slab line though.
