Jake Hall Climbing FOA

Description 

One of the best at Jamestown. The first half is technical slab climbing with a reachy crux move right off of the ground. The route continues with a couple more pumpy moves to a rest below the roof. The roof itself is pumpfest on jugs. Pull the lip onto the face and you are at the anchors.


Location 

This route is near the midway point of Jamestown crag. It climbs the overhang immediately right of Strawberry Shortcake.

Hanging Draws

FOA is closer to 80" IF you take it to the top. The frist quarter of the climb is more of a face than a Slab. and the FA was done on trad before the bolts were put in!

Do you know who the first ascentionist was Eric? Also is the 80 feet you're referring to including the second pitch?

No, I dont have my guidebook but its listed in there(rock climbing arkansas by Cole Fennel. I always climb the money, whole 80ft in one pitch!!!

Also, since the hanging chain/draws were installed FOA feels much more like a 5.11a to me. Its better to clip your own draws, plus chains and hanging draws takes away from the rocks natural beauty!

I think it goes 5.11c trad, 5.11b sportdraws, 5.11a chains.. its sad, it keeps getting chopped down a grade .. lol
