If you can climb the grade, probably one of the more unique and fun routes at New Jack.

I agree this is one of the better routes at New Jack, also probably my favorite 12a in the area. Good rock with a redpoint boulder problem near the end.

Awesome route with great moves. It's mostly short thin sections with nice jugs between them to fight off the pump.

I lost my mojo in line with the second to last bolt (felt cruxy) and landed 3 feet off the ground so beware of pulling out too much rope if youre insecure.
