JBMH is stout, overhanging aid right from the start. The first three pitches are the hardest, in part because after that you are used to the steepness. In the mid 2000s Todd Skinner and friends tried to establish a free climb which crisscrosses the beginning the route. Skinner abandoned that start but in 2010 the project had been revived by a motivated local. (so there might be some confusing bolts around the first couple pitches--not on route but distracting if you're looking for the first pitch((which is just past the bolts)))

Awesome Route. So Steep! Almost epiced when we threw our stuff off Ahwahnee and jugged up thinking we just had one more aid lead and the two free pitches to the top. Jeff lobbed three good 40 forters off that last pitch but eventually got er done. wild yellow lichen ragin.
