Jay on the Jug Haul, as we referred to it. April ...


Southern Discomfort is probably the best route near its grade at the Rock Maze. It is a fairly long problem, yet it always stays low to the ground with a pretty good landing. Find it by heading around to the main area of the maze. It is to the right of Slot Machine, and to the left of Muscle Corner.

Usually done as a sit-down start, start on huge juggy shelfs and make a upward traverse to the right. Then when grabbing a two-handed slot, head up. The final moves are the hardest. This one is pumpy for the modest V2 rating, but the holds are all great.

Just worked this one last week. It was beyond awesome. I'll try to post up some info for the area too as soon as I get pics developed. You SD guys gotta get a book out for this place. It was unbelievable!

This route is killer. Awesome shelfs and good pockets towards the end. I do this route every time I come here, and well worth it.
