|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!|

Friend pointed these comments out to me and I'm curious... it appears from these LMA notes that were in the '73 guide that Treiber and Byrd aided the last pitch of Good, Bad, and Ugly on the FA of Slammer Jam, but there seems like more to the story.
I'd be very interested in hearing more!

|Greg, those are fascinating notes on this route -- I'd love to see the whole thing. Could you send it via DropBox or something? It's really a great link up -- we did the first pitch of Crack Lovers to the tree, then linked the 2nd of Crack Lovers with the first of Slammer. 2nd pitch of Slammer was the tough one (in our opinion it was harder than the last pitch with the roof) and then the exit out what Cramer's guide calls the 3rd (last) pitch of Slammer and what these comments and your doc suggest is the last pitch of G.B & U. (which makes sense given what a gorgeous straight line that is). Sweet sweet!|
