Description 

A zesty route with old school appeal. Short and intense, Jacob's Ladder is a psychological thriller packed with lots of climbing. If this climb had a tag it would read: "Handle With Care". Don't let this route become your "ladder"...


Square up in the center of the face and find the most featured area to begin, run it out about twelve or thirteen feet over a thin and thoughtful slab. Gain a decent rest and clip the first bolt, take time here to ponder; continue on, execute the crux, stay heavy on those feet. Pass a few more bolts and keep your wits for the final moves to the anchor.

Location 

Jacob's Ladder is the short slab just right of Shadowfax . It lies at the south end of Wall Street and is about 75 feet north (right) of the Petroglyphs and two routes right of Potstash.

Protection 

Draws for four bolts and an anchor. A stick-clip can be used, this eliminates some of the risk but also detracts from the route's character.

Anchors and lead bolts replaced on 1-16-11.

I pulled out 4 bolts by hand. 2 of which were the anchor.

Whoa...thanks for doing the upgrade. That's scary...nothing worse like pulling out and realizing your protection had unknowingly broken.

Thanks for replacing the bolts but be careful on the mono looking hold around the 1st bolt. There is still some metal bits in there that can poke your finger.

This route makes you think and is quite tricky in my opinion. Low crux with high 1st bolt is reason enough for me to stick clip-I don't think it takes away from the climb at all.
