Larry Coats and Gordon Douglass on Slammer Jam 2nd...
Falcon closures. MORE INFO >>>


This is another of the stoic straight faced 5.10s at GM. This line starts off the second belay of the Classic however you want to get to that point.

Pitch 1 (3 total)Climb out onto the left wall via jam crack and continue up and left into another system and follow it until you can traverse right to a small belay stance above corner. 5.8.

Pitch 2. Climb crack to move left into a left facing corner that arches to the left. Follow that to an open belay (gear) 5.9.

Pitch 3 (5 total). Climb up right facing corner to roof and pull roof on the right side. Continue up crack to the top. Spectacular and physical pitch. Site of some really good whippers.


On the wall just left of the Flying Buttress.


Standard rack, wires and many runners.

And just to clarify the history, the photo of the last pitch is on The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (5.10+), the first ascent of Slammer Jam (Trieber, Byrd) exited on Candyland 5th pitch.

Yes- Lovejoy has told me about this common misconception. What most people call The Slammer Jam now is really The Slammer Jam -> GBU. Either way, the final pitch is the best. The approach (whether done as 1 or 2 pitches) of Reunion -> Cracklover's is recommended. Nice position and exposure on this line!
