Go Ahead and Jump


Go Ahead and Jump is located about 25 yards left, or east, of Kemosabe and five feet right of a large (5 foot tall) white boulder leaning against the crags. Climb the crack located on the black face through a chimney and up to a tree - optional belay and rappel station. Pull through another chimney to a ledge and another tree. Belay here then hike west to the top of Tonto and rappel that route with a 60 meter rope.

a very nice little crack- an excellent first lead, varied climbing, well protected. nowhere near its 5.7 rating in Brock- Handren rates it at 5.6, which, imho, is generous as the 5.6 crack to the right (OK, OK, OK) felt more difficult than this one.

Note: This route stays wet late into the spring- watch your ropes when rappelling!

New cord on the tree as of this summer. You're welcome. PS that bolt is a Star Dryvin that predates my conception-use at your own risk. Think the 5.7 rating comes from all the folks who flounder at the start. Look for the feet and it IS 5.6 if not easier.

To make this a 5.7, climb the face to the left of the upper crack above the midway ledge/bush. It's runout, but the holds are there. (See Dumptruck.)

Without the little 5.6 boulder problem at the start, this route would be 5.4/5.5.
