myself, grabbing that last bolt before the send. i...

Description 

Moving to and past the 4th bolt is cruxy. This is a decent climb. Several new hangers on the route. After the traverse this climb stays on you right until the end.


Location 

Left end of the Main wall. Starts in a corner, up a crack.


Protection 

Sport. Six bolts (seven? perhaps? I will verify this) and shuts at the top.

This was the first line bolted in Jacks Canyon, and it's easy to see why. Good exposure and consistently fun, challenging moves up beautifully solid rock. One of the best routes in the area.

Definitely a cool line. It seems like they should have split the difference on the first two bolts and just had one, high-ish bolt, but it's no problem either way because of easy climbing. The first bolt is spinning a bit and I had not wrench.

The crux is interesting for Jacks, a little more technical and just plain vertical it seems to me.

You can cop a great hand jam rest right after the crux before tackling the slightly heady run to the anchors.
