Start as if doing "Mark Hamill's" (sound's a little kinky!), move immediately left.


This is just to the left of "Mark Hamill's Face" and is toproped off of separate anchors.

This route grabbed its name because this dude that works for Jefferson County was cruising around killing weeds that didn't belong in the area, and on his second pass, we chatted it up. After Jim left, he came back carrying this little plant. He said it is called, "Myrtle Spurge"...thus, "Jim's Myrtle Spurge".

Fun route...

The white sap of the spurge is caustic. I'd glove up to handle it.
