Fun warm up route to the left of Frosted Snakes. Follow the crack using a combination of jamming, stemming, and face holds. Follow the crack to the top and then continue up to the anchors of Hold the Jam with a single rope rappel.

this is a fun little climb that should be a great warmup once it cleans up a bit. when i followed the FA there were literally PILES of bird crap a small ledge about 2/3 of the way up.

the all-air rap into the corridor is a nice touch.

As an additional bonus to having Mike and Jon out to LDE, we got a new route with a hilarious name! Thanks for your enthusiasm, guys! A bit of wire brush work will clean this baby up nicely. :)
