Steep start with many well chalked pockets. Climb past two bulges to anchors. Very fun but pumpy!

...for Main Wall. Which is to say, it's one of the easiest routes on that wall. Moderate is relative.

I consider the term "moderate" in climbing to mean "5.9 or easier". :-) But I understand what you're saying, Hillary.
This is a super fun route irregardless!

Careful foot placements make the upper crux bulge a breeze.
Watch out for the guano coating most of the first shelf.

Haven't been on this route in a while. Blew the sequence at the roof by trying to hand jam and go straight up. I'm confident that would work but not that day. HUNG, then used the standard exit going slightly right.
Also, Deidre claims that there is a critical hold that has broken off. It's had been so long since I'd been on it, I didn't miss it. Then, I did hang so maybe it WAS missed after all?!
Opinions on that? Hold missing, more difficult, urban legend to make us old fat weak people feel better?

Another Jack's route that offers some cool hand jams in key places. I found the hand jam sequence Susan was looking for at the top and it proved an easy flash sequence for me. Short, but great fun!
