One of the best routes at West Elden, if you can climb it!

Located just right of the Baxter Crack, John's Jugs climbs the steep fingers and tips crack that splits an overhanging headwall.

Start over boulders and broken rock to access the crack. Launch up the fingers/tips crack which widens to thin hands just before the cliff top.


Located about 50 yards left (north) of the Deception Cracks.


2 x #0 TCU/Blue Alien
2 x #1 TCU/Green Alien
1 x #2 TCU/Yellow Alien
1 x .5 Camalot
1 x .75 Camalot
1 x 1 Camalot
Possibly a couple of stoppers

There are several sturdy trees at the top of this route for TR anchors or to rap off. This route is easily TRed after climbing the Baxter Crack.
