Jaws is the mean looking finger crack on the north face of JAWS. The climb widens from fingers to thin hands with insecure feet.

Direct crack climbing leading to a liebacking move or two is how this route is often done. Very clean

Rick Piggott did the first ascent of this around 1976. It was originally rated 5.10c as I recall.

Interesting that I am forced to give this a V grade. I would call climbing this ropeless more of a solo than a boulder problem. If there is really a difference I guess not but this is a very bold boulder problem.

Hehe, 10d in the ol' Fry guide iirc. Solid.

Fun, but over-rated. And that picture make it look three times longer than it is. 2.5 out of 4.

Ryan doesn't know what he's talking about. Awesome line that really tests you in a lot of pure jamming sizes, without constrictions.

Camhead didn't send until we put tic marks (1 for thumbs down, 2 for thumbs up jams, differentiating between right and left hands) all the way up the 10 foot climb.
