"The Good, the Bad, and the Jacked" climbs the blank face roughly 30 feet left of Cracker Jack. Start at the toe of the huge flake underneath a shallow corner with an old fixed piton. Ascend the flake rightwards to the ledge, place reasonable pro (#2 or #3 cam), move left and make exceedingly desperate moves up a shallow corner. Pass the fixed piton and veer slightly right to an OK rest where it's also possible to place small pro. From here execute a burly move to a horizontal hold (pro), traversing immediately left for another in-your-face section in a thin crack.

This is a 5.12 on steroids. I'd give it 5.12c. Hats off to the first ascensionist, regardless what grade.


BD #2 or #3 cams protect the initial moves from the pedestal. After the fixed piton, it's pretty spaced small pro (rp's, c3's and small aliens) to the top.
