|Funk Rock City
Can you say perfect jams? This route has them for sure. The route is the right crack on the stunning pillar. It is immediately right of Cruising Lane. The first half is great hand jams behind a right facing flake. The upper middle section is wider, but casual to a rest. The final section is weird, poorly protected and most often sandy. Nice warm up for the climbing partner who kept you up snoring the night before.

Hand sized gear mostly, with a fist sized piece or two and some TCUs and tri-cams up high.

This was at least as hard as cruising lane. Goofy up high... fun climb.

Nice, sustained jamming on great rock.
Route is certainly not PG13, so don't let the MP rating deter you.
