This route is not as hard as it looks from the ground. It is well protected, secure, and is on solid stone. Other than Cellbound, it is the best route on this formation.
About 50' down and left of the routes on the south face of Jailhouse Rock, is a steep brown wall with several crack systems. Climb up a solid "bowl" to reach the bottom of a crack, perhaps three meters off of the ground. Set solid pro in the finger crack and climb it up and right onto some flakes and features, while the crack gets wider. Continue up past a few 5.8 moves to the top of the wall.
To descend go to the summit and off, or simul-rap from a solid horn.
