FA of Horns of Jericho (direct). Dirty (exfoliating) crack systems that will clean up once it gets a few ascents. This start doubles the amount of nailing you'll encounter on Jericho, primarily beaks and arrows and avoids the long traversing approach of Jericho's first 3 pitches. Belay 2 is one 3/8" and two 1/4" bolts. Feel free to replace one of the 1/4" bolts with 3/8" if you're feeling randy.

Second Ascent of Jericho Loosed a few blocks and cleaned up many of the ledges. Still some loose blocks and sharp edges. Notes: - Hauling to pitch 2 from the ground requires a 70m rope (or approx 225') - "Belay for 50" ledge has few comfortable spots, if bringing portaledges, belay 6 is much better. - When leaving roof on pitch 6 be very careful not to get rope pinched in the corner or rope drag will be prohibitive. Mistakes on topo: - It is a two rope rap from the summit to the 10th belay, not a single rope rap. - You may not be able to do a two rope rap from 8 to 6 (We had a 200' static that came up 15' short. Depending on stretch, two 60m dynamics may differ. - No angles or blades or #3 heads needed on the rack.
