crux

Description 

Pull off the ground and encounter the crux, a shouldery move moving from one gaston to the next. Make a few more tricky moves to to a few nice jugs and a resting hole. Rest well as the rest of the route is sustained and tricky on small holds. Pull the final redpoint crux just below the final bolt and a nice resting ledge.

Also didn't encounter any chipped holds on this one (that I saw anyways) and the grade seemed to be solid.

Location 

Towards the far right side of Main Wall. Starts off the large layer of flood debris using a undercling at chest height. Between an Unknown route and Hooked on Pockets. Second route right of This old Route.

Protection 

7 Bolts to Anchors

indeed one of the better ones I have climbed at Jacks. Reminiscent of some of my favorites at the grade at Shelf Road.

EDIT: 7 bolts
