This is one of the best crack routes at Jackson Falls. No way is it a 10b. A 9+ at the most. Great handjamming on this one with good gear. Convenient anchor on top. Have fun.

Definitely not a 10b. Was my first real introduction to crack climbing and I could do it. Don't be discouraged by the rating!
