John leading our last stellar climb of the weekend...
Hidden but a short distance from the crowds at Trashcan Rock is this gem of a route which if it were roadside would see almost constant traffic.
Climb a short slab, or as an alternative traverse in from the left, to reach the base of the crack which starts with a short vertical section of fingers and hands. Above this is a ledge and another short section with fingers and some stemming/liebacking to reach a second ledge. The last bit climbs up and right on face holds until able to traverse back left to reach good hand jams which lead to the top and the anchors.
The variety of moves on this coupled with the setting make for a tradtastic experience. Three stars out of five.
Just left of White Powder, a wide crack/chimney.
Gear to 1.5", one 2.5" piece, include wires
2 bolt anchor/rap

Great pump with continuous moves. I counted 3 10a moves along the route. As for gear I found that small to #1 Camalots were all I needed and there is a 2 bolt rap anchor at the top! The most physical move was finding that my harness was back at Trashcan rock so I ran there and back (1 mile round trip up and down the sand dunes in approximately 11 minutes). It made the 43 deg. day no so cold for a while!!

Very good and demanding route; it keeps one's attention all the way. I'm going to be contrary and rate it 10B.

Definitely a great route. Good gear, fun cruxes, and a final challenge at the end. Largest piece needed is a #2 Camalot - and that is only used at the very end.

This is one of the better .10a Josh climbs I've been on. Definitely better than right baskerville.
If you climb straight up the crack on the upper third of the crack it might be .10b, but that's a little contrived as a step right then back in on good holds is the obvious (and .10a) sequence...

Really sustained, tougher than other .10a's I've done in Josh. Lots of hands. I did it on TR, but it looked very easy to protect.

One of my favorite 10a's in Josh. Well worth it. The climb breaks into 3 sections with decent rests after the first two.
I think it must be geared perfectly towards my fingers and hands cause I don't find it nearly as stiff as many other JT 10a's. I have long thin fingers and I think that's probably a huge plus for me. Anyone with big mitts would have a harder time.
Eats gear. Great crack. Nothing but love.

Interesting moves in a few places with a punchy topout. Bolts at the top are in good shape for an easy lower or rap. Eats up pro in the small to medium sizes.
