Description

Jack the Ripper is a short route near the west end of the north wall of the Railroad Amphitheater. Find the diagonal crack about 5 feet left of Snedegar's Nose. Use hand jams to ascend the slightly overhanging crack. Finish on the ridge to the left of the mid-size roof.

Hand jam boulder problem. Sick. Awesome route with good gear but pretty strenuous to place it at times. After the initial crux section the moves are super sweet and 5.8ish. Finishing on Snedgar's Nose is heady but there is a SPLITTER .5 BD size crack for 25 feet to follow to the top. Jun 27, 2011

That's absurd.... go back... hand jam the thing on a nice humid 90F day after it has been raining alot. Only then will you discover Jack's true nature.... Sep 9, 2010

Never hand-jammed, lay back on the crack and find the right sequence for feet.

At the end of the crack traverse right to under the roof in the dihedral and finish on Cop Ripper for the full value. Sep 8, 2010
