I'm In Love With Mary Jane! 

This route is nothing more than a thugfest of huge moves to huge holds yet legitimately owns the distinction of being the pumpiest 5.11 in Spearfish canyon. Mary Jane is blonde, bullet proof, overhung as hell, and tends to fight back with every fiber of her stony soul.

This climb is one of the easier routes to locate but one of the hardest to get up. Expect to feel breathless during those big reaches to huge pockets on pumpy, overhung terrain that gets in your face and never lets up. Enjoy a hard start that requires you to navigate a minefield of what appear to be big holds that get slopey and greasy if you don't keep moving.

Pull a roof and take a puff! You might get one rest at the fifth bolt before you endure and enjoy a series of sick and not as slick jugs and huge holds on hopelessly overhung terrain till the anchors. Light this one up and be prepared to inhale!

At The Danks according to Cronin's new guidebook 

Middle-most route at the The Upper Danks. It's probably easier to walk down canyon on the pavement to get there. Take the main trail that starts 420 feet down the highway from the parking lot.

Protection 

Bring a dozen quickdraws and a willingness to take a beatdown.
