Peter Hayes leading the crux section at the bolt, ...


This climb was originally rated 5.7. Over the years, more and more holds have broken off near the start, considerably increasing the difficulty. The last time I did it (mid 90s), getting up to the bolt 12 feet off the ground was committing 5.9, and the move by the bolt was 5.10A. Maybe it's harder now. Above the crux move, a long 5.6 chimney takes you to the top. This is not a recommended climb.


include some gear to 3 or 4 inches

A fun hard variation we did-At the base of the chimney section, go right on the edge of the corner and face up to the 2 bolt anchor on The Ghost.

Not R. I finished on the 5.7 end of The Jackal.

This climb is actually fun. I did it yesterday. It is worth doing if you are in the area. It is a little delicate getting to the bolt. One step up from bolt and a 5.10a step to the left and reach up to the left to a jug. The next section is 'R' or a grounder for sure, but easy; you won't fall. The rest of the climb is 5.7 or 5.8. After 70' or 80' traverse right to a bolted rap station.
