it looks like some feet have broken off on this making it hard. it felt hard than 8.

Hard 8 at least maybe not a nine yet but it will be when more stuff breaks off.

there seemed to be only one hard move, 5.8+ or 5.9- seems about right. how are there so many routes that we don't know who did the FA or the name of? seems odd.

I exploded the key hold at the crux yesterday.

felt powerful the way I did it...more 5.9ish than 5.8

Needs to be re-rated pronto. Chossy at the crux and lack of feet make a roof pull harder than 5.8

Whatever feet were left on this route I am fairly confident I took off. I peeled off more rock than I care to mention. To pull the roof I used two crimps and smeared both feet leaving a full reach to the next bucket hold (and I'm 6' 0"). I would say this move was 10b. The rest of the route was about 5.8.

I "cleaned off" more feet at the crux and caught some air time to boot.

i agree with captin bad beta. the bulge is certainly a 10 move, and the rest of the climb is 8/9ish.

Definitely now a one move wonder.

1 move wonder, and the crux didn't feel like a 5.9.....

the crux is cranky, no doubt.

not fun. and not 5.9.

maybe 10a but easier than the next one over.

Josephine said on April 28th, 2008
trog, i respectfully disagree. while there are sections on jet lag that are easier than Through Space & Time. the hardest move on JL is harder (for me) than the hardest move on TS&T. therefore, i conclude that JL is the more difficult route.

I agree that this is not a 5.9. I talked to a woman, after I got off of it, and she said there was a shelf that broke off under the "roof". (It isn't much of one). Without the shelf it makes it harder to pull the "roof," making it harder than 5.9. I say stiff .10a or soft .10b.

kharvey said on June 6th, 2009
We broke any remainder of the shelf off today. Agree with Josephine, 10a next to it is a MUCH easier route.

I thought the crux was pretty wicked. The route felt like a 9 to me.

nik said on June 28th, 2012
crux pulling the bulge was definitely tough for a 9. low 10 seems fair. also, fun moves off the flake down low!

When there were feet to pull the roof/bulge I'm certain it was a much easier move. Nothing but tiny high edges for feet now. Fun climb though...
