Jeff bolted the easier left variant partly because he was tired of climbers on E-Type skirting over there and skipping the crux. I think he hoped the separate bolt line would help highlight that section as off-route. Dec 9, 2016

Best 11a at smith! The hike is worth it for this route alone. Apr 5, 2011
Watch for a bucketload of poison ivy on the approach. There is a fun 5.9 just to the left as well. Jul 30, 2007

If this route alone is not enough to entice you, there's a new variation to E Type Jag called "E Type Fag" that begins up E-Type, but heads left, around the big roof. Dec 10, 2006
