Lean across from the boulder and pre clip the 1st draw. Start below, a hard boulder problem off the deck gets you started on this traversing route. Jugs, underclings, long reaches, side pulls, technical, tricky and pumpy. Unique route, local classic.


This route is the farthest right route and has fixed chain draws.


10 fixed chain draws, fixed chain draw anchor.

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 and landed 3 feet off the ground so beware of pulling out too much rope if youre insecure.
