The top of this route is a little run out, and the rock is sharp enough that a 20 foot fall wouldn't be fun.The crux is either after the 2nd bolt or the 3rd bolt, depending on how tall you are.

I would recomend that you avoid the temptation to go right on the flake after the 3rd bolt. Instead, keep going up, and you'll see the next bolt a little past a bulge.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Jekyll and Hyde was a route I bolted with Jim Lundeen back in the days when people took gear to the cliff (1996). Finger sized aliens or TCUs take the R rating out of the grade. The original finish for this route and Rampage were to top out on the ledge via a finger crack (small TCU) where you will still find the old anchor, two fat Metolious rap hangers.

This route now has it's own cold shut anchor, making it MUCH better and less runout up high. You might want an optional finger sized piece of gear still. -Nah, just go for it. :-)

Nice going Jerry, this is a terrific route. Different feeling from the rest of the .10s at the crag in that it is more sparsely bolted. The moves are all there though, just clip that third bolt, head up over the bulge and go get it.
