Naomi heading up. May help pinning down exact loc...

Description 

A popular easy lead, Jacob's Ladder is a lot of fun for the grade. As the name implies, it's got plenty of juggy holds, which you'll be glad to have when you see the first bolt is about 20' off the deck. A nice long route too.

A slightly overhanging start leads to nice climbing on a blocky corner, following bolts and fixed pins to the top.


Location 

Red Light District, near the end of the wall just left of Pocket Pool.


Protection 

Six bolts/fixed pins; bolted anchors.

This one wasn't as easy as I remembered. Fun to get back on it after so long.

This route was the only thing dry besides the Bunker routes. It's mostly slab! How is that even possible? Cool, fun route.

Had trouble first time getting exact location as some new routes have been added to the left of Red Light District. Jacob's is inbetween Red Light District and the waterfall. 150-200 feet to the left of Red Light District. Route was measured to be 60-65 feet.
