Felt equally as hard and very similar to Paradise Lost at Purgatory.

There's some sneaky beta at the top that makes it easier. And no, it's not traversing right.

Fun route. Several spots with thin hands and feet. A few spots where you have to stand up into underclings. Good Clipping holds.

I'm not a slab guy but even I found this enjoyable. I'd give it a 5.9+ (but that's close enough to 10a). thin section up top made it fun. Don't cheat right, or left, there's good holds to be found.....patients

The crux is painfully obvious. A fun climb for sure with some great moves, go a little right towards the top, the holds are much better, then step back left to the anchors...

good climb. it's short, but the variety of ways to clear the top section makes it worthwhile. give it a whirl.

Nobody I ran into on this trip seemed to know route names! I was told this was Jump for Joy by some guys who were on what they thought was Motha (but was actually Five Finger Discount). Really nice route, wish I hadn't blown the onsight near the top.

I say that this route is closer to a 5.9. And some of the 5.9+s are 10a for sure.

if you think there isnt a hold...there is always an undercling...
