super fun jug haul

Description 

Begin with a sustained pocketed face up about 40 feet to an excellent rest. Shake out and study the crux right above you, and when you're ready, pull the final roof to a large ledge with the anchors.

Major style points if you actually mantle the last move instead of flopping onto your stomach.


Location 

This is the middle of the three bolted routes to the left of Kokopeli's Dream.


Protection 

7 or so bolts, bolted anchor. Reaching the anchor from the ledge could be a challenge for shorter climbers.

Difficulty of crux is slightly height dependent. All around fun nonetheless. Very nice route.

Fun pocket pulling leads to a series of small roofs. Very fun route! Good warm-up for the one next door.

Loose block creates a new crux. Super fun roof pulls anyway. Does anyone know why there is a second set of rap rings half way up?

Rob I think you are refering to some rings to the left of this route. There is a 5.6 to the left that shares the first few bolts with Machete then heads left while Machete goes straight up. Its called Jacobs Ladder.
