there is a large loose rock right below the 2nd anchor. it's kind of a sloping ledge that you mantle up onto at the end of the climb, and right at the back is a block about the size of a large toaster oven. i barely grabbed it as i was about to step up and clip the slings and it moved several inches.


that rock is gonna scare the crap outta someone, hopefully no worse than that. we'd have trundled it but the area was a bit crowded.

Although a little awkward at the start, this is one of the most enjoyable 5.8s I have done in Yosemite. A sixty meter rope is a must, because you will have so much fun leading it, you won't want to stop at the first belay ledge. Highly recommended, partly because of the variety, partly because of the length, and partly because of the proximity to other cool climbs.

A stout old school yosemite 5.8. It's steeper than it looks from the base. Fun.

Not 4 stars especially if jam crack, sherries and lazy bum are only 3. I decent route with an awkward move or two down low.

A good climb at Pat and Jack. I led this and Golden Needles (5.8). Route protects well, and offers rest spots. Felt pretty easy by Yosemite 5.8 standards. Go do it! Set up a TR on Knob Job (10c) - awesome
