Description 

One of Jamestown's really outstanding '9s! Excellent rock and great pro take the edge off a pumpy upper section. Don't miss this one if you're a solid 5.9 leader.

Starting in a well-defined vertical crack system, follow the crack to an overhang. Pull the overhang and continue to a larger roof above. Using two parallel cracks, crank the roof and continue to the top, finishing at the big ledge.

Location 

Starts about 30' left of Bandy Rooster; the last climbable route in the Harvest Wall section. Rap from ring anchors.

Protection 

Takes lots of medium gear; bring some larger pieces (#3 camalot or similar) to protect the roof moves. Ring anchors on the wall above the ledge.

This has been on my to-do list for quite a while, and leading it was every bit as fun as I thought it would be (even though a light rain started as I was going through the crux!). The section above the roof is intense. I think Pumpkin Patches is one of the best for the grade at Jamestown.
