Thinking of going to JTree during the labor day weekend. What are some of the cooler/shaded areas to climb with moderate routes? Thanks for any input.

Jtree is way too hot this time of year. You're better off heading somewhere else 'til at least October...



















...so I'll have the place all to myself that weekend. :twisted:

Lost Horse area - Shorter Wall - north-facing - Double Dogleg, Beck's Bet, Young Lust, Smithereens (5.7 - 5.9)

Hemingway Buttress (shady late morning through most of the afternoon) - White Lightning, Dung Fu, Feltoneon Physics, Overseer (also in the 5.7 - 5.9 range)

Dairy Queen Wall - Mr. Misty Kiss, Scrumdillyishus, Frosty Cone

Real Hidden Valley - The Thin Wall (afternoons) - Count on Your Fingers, Ain't Nothing but a JTree Thing, Almost Vertical, Butterfingers make me Horny

Hopefully that should get you started! Also take a look at climbs on Mt. Grossvogel (Hidden Valley), Toe Jam on The Old Woman (afternoon), and the wonderful Sail Away (Real Hidden Valley).

Have fun! Maybe we'll see you out there in a month or so!

The heat hasn't been that bad this week. Not bad being that it hasn't been in the hundreds :D . By labor day it should be cooled off and you should be able to climb all day without the heat being to bad. Went yesterday afternoon and it was actually quite chilly.
