Description

Good moderate route but definitely solid 5.9 (kinda rare for Jacks Canyon I know!). One crux move to safely clip the second bolt and another awaits higher up. Very cool movement and I do recommend this route, just don't do it first thing in the morning like we did!!

Location

Located somewhat left of the center of the Cracker Jack Cliffs; look for a indistinct corner (with another great 5.9), this route is about 15 feet right of the corner and just above some small blocks on the ground. Route # 27 in the guidebook.

Protection

4 Bolts will get you to the fixed anchors on ledge above for your rappel.

Good climb, but I agree that it is at the hard end of 5.9. No soft grades on this one! Nov 7, 2006

If you're a fledgeling 5.9 leader and hoping to bag all the moderates at cracker jack you should think twice about this route. Clipping the 1st bolt may not be the problem but it's a pretty stiff 9 move past the first bolt and past the 3rd bolt. Good climbing and fun but make sure you're up to it. Apr 2, 2007

Maybe Im a weak trad climber but I thought the start was harder than Sports Book which is called a 10a/b. This route was harder for me than the one next to it. I think there is 5.9 climbing up high but the start I struggled with. Also the length between the 3rd and 4th bolt should make this a PG-13. If you were to fall clipping the 4th bolt you would fall about 15 to 20 feet. Oct 22, 2017
