BETA PHOTO: Looking up at Hold the Jam


Beautiful crack to the right of Centipede Corner (#5 on the overview photo). The crack widens toward the top and leads to a roof with a narrow constriction. Those with >32" waist may want to diet a bit before attempting the constriction.

As the name implies, typical crack climbing technique is not the easiest means to ascend this climb.

The two bolt anchor at the top serves as a rap station for Frosted Snakes as well.


See overview photo.


Standard rack to #4 camalot. Doubles of #2 and #3.
