Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionJah Hole is located in a nice shady, off the beaten path location on the far East side of the Brickyard. As far as I can tell the area doesn't get much sun so the rock stays cool even on the hottest summer days.
The Kiser Problem (Pipeline?) brought me to this area originally. When I finished this problem we started to look around and realized that although the rocks around this area were really dirty and loose, it looked like there would be a lot of potential for some good climbs. After a couple weeks of trail maintenance and serious cleaning, some really nice problems are starting to emerge and there should be a some good ones still to come.
Over the next couple weeks I'll be updating this area with new climbs that are coming out in the hope to get people out climbing here. As Kelly has mentioned people have climbed here in the past but from what I can tell it's been a long time since these problems have been climbed. Hopefully with improved accessibility and a good cleaning these problems will receive some more attention rather than wasting away like they have been over the years.
As always, if anyone (Kelly?, Bob?) has info on the area let me know and I will update accordingly.
Getting ThereFrom the Coffee Boulder keep walking towards the road (away from the Extremist boulder) following a faint trail that gets a little more obvious the further you go. When you hit the split in the trail after about 50 ft, take the right fork and continue for another 50ft. At this point you should hit a long cliffband that continues for roughly 300 ft or so on which a handful of nice climbs can be found.
In an effort to get people out to continue the developement of Jah Hole I've compiled a little mini guide on the area which you can find below. Hopefully people will find it useful because there's still a lot to do out there. FYI the pictures look weird in Google Doc format for some reason but if you download the pdf they look fine. Cheers!
