Flotsam and Jetsam are two climbs on the east face of the Minor Mass of the Doorway Rocks. They can be easily located by finding the large pine tree that lays across the chimney below Pigeon Roof.

The right variation of the route is the longer of the two. Make your way up to the "Saddle". From the saddle climb around so that you're above the fallen tree at the bottom of an inside corner about 10 feet above the "Saddle". Climb up the inside corner on easy holds to the south face of a small tower. Use ledges to gain the top of the tower.

The left variation climbs up the chimney that contains the fallen tree. This variation is the more awkward variation and is less recommended than the right variation.

My buddy and I climbed this today and he did his first-ever lead on it. The line up the dihedral is challenging but straightforward. The top section is nice and exposed, so don't stop once you finish the dihedral. Go all the way to the top of the pinnacle! Nov 10, 2002

Another nice multi-pitch for beginning leaders is to ascend B-Minor Mass and then continue on this climb. I think the inside corner is the better route and it's more like a 5.5. Aug 6, 2007
There is a very large loose block toward the top of this to the right of the exit crack. It looked like I could pull it right off! Jul 31, 2010

This route is a great way to finish the B-minor mass link up. Good gear and great exposure. Jul 11, 2014
