Description

This is the obvious chimney/crack system near the left end of Jailhouse Rock. At the top of the left pillar you can see the anchors for this climb.

Near the bottom of the route the rock quality isn't very good but the climbing is easy. After about 15 feet the rock improves and the real climbing begins. From here you can stem, jam, or climb the face (take your pick) to the base of an easy 10-foot hard to protect chimney that leads to the anchors.

Protection

Standard rack - stoppers and cams from .5 to 4". This route has some of the best stopper placements around.

Fun easy route that protects easily. There are enough bomber stopper placements that this could easily go with a passive only rack. I think it is closer to 5.7 than 5.6. Feb 15, 2004

very cool and unusual route for mount lemmon. lots of jams to be had, or you can just stem and climb the fact if jamming isn't your thing. even the easy, unprotected chimney at the top is tons of fun. Nov 25, 2015

Good for a new trad leader with standard rack. Smooth rock. Jan 4, 2016

It's about 5.5 or 5.6, a fun crack/chimney with loads of big supplemental edges and ledges. Protects well aside from the finishing chimney, bring a couple #3 camalots if you want to really sew it up. There is gear in the final chimney too, but it's not as obvious. Feb 15, 2016
