DescriptionThis two pitch route connects to the upper part of Jensens Jaunt. The first pitch (5.9) is a nice warmup for the crux second pitch. It is a very thin lieback in a large dihedral. The crack is too thin for fingers (for most people), so unusual techniques are needed to climb up to the point where you can exit around to the face on the right.
TriviaWhen Kenny and I began trying this, I thought of something I had read recently, something like "On the Road, you have to keep going"; and it perfectly described this route. Once you start climbing, you have to keep going.
We were astonished the route had not been climbed yet.
