Storm Jumper, Ptarmagin Creek, Independence Pass, ...
If this route were 3 degrees less overhanging, it would be 5.8! If the holds were not all huge ladder rungs, it would be 5.12! The combination of these two things conspiring on this little stretch of real estate results in a classic Pass jug haul. Short, vertical and easy (5.7) run out section leads to super steep & fun climbing. You will not believe how good every hold is!
Look for a lot of chalk! This is the 3rd route (from left) on the Storm Jumper Wall.
5 bolts. Chain anchor.

The 5.7 unprotected runout to the first bolt felt more like committing 5.9. A stick clip is highly recommended. Otherwise this is a well bolted and fun climb worth doing.
