There is only 4 bolts on the JB!

The basketball sloper is meant to be a distraction, not a hold.

Another super fun route.

I thought I was onsighting an .11, but that's because I made that 4th clip way to hard by holding on to the huge sloper. Move higher for a jug.

Fun finish for sure.

Fun line. Jungle Gym is a fitting name.

2nd bolt on this route was moving and the hanger spinning today. Just FYI

some slopers on this route make it tough to do during the summer months, tough clip right before the anchors with a big fall potential.

it seemed a little "dangerous" for a moderate route....I wasn't psyched clipping whichever bolt it is.....
Myke Dronez said on January 3rd, 2008
I almost kissed the ground falling from said fourth clip the other day. It was a good ride but beware of trying to move too much higher than the bolt and peeling. Thanks for the catch ahab.

as of 10/19/15- all the hangers on this were loose/spinning. I had nothing to fix them with

Awesome! Nice work.

In case anyone missed it: Not me in this video but today I fell from the same sloper. Thankfully had a good belayer who kept me just a few feet off the deck. Be careful on this one.

Let me guess...Grigri?

Seriously, if you are almost getting killed on a route like this, please just quit climbing

1+ previous anon!! If there was a grigri it saved a life, not the other way round. Been using the Grigri since they were first introduced, and have never had a grigri malfunction! I have witnessed user error, the belayer held down the cam because they were startled and nearly decked a climber. The belayer let go at the last minute when rope burned her fingers, and the climber stopped at the first bolt.

Bolting has always sucked on this one...
