Description

As you stand looking south at The Kitchen, Double Jam is the obvious parallel cracks that sit directly in the middle of the wall.

The route starts easy, but as you begin to jam the parallel cracks it becomes overhung requiring you to get a solid jam in order to make upward progress. Without good crack technique this climb quickly becomes an overhung 5.10.

Protection

This route is usually top ropped. Set the anchor using the two blots directly above the route by walking around to the right of the face. If you lead the route with gear you will want three or four 2 - 3 inch cams.

I would recommend toproping, it is a doable but not very enjoyable trad lead Jul 5, 2015
