Description

Jam, crimp,campus, or style your way through this short route, but beware the crux may be over before you know it. The gear is good in the places where the rocks don't move, or you can just TR it like the masses.

Location

Located to west of Roy Gap Chimneys. Goes straight up and out of the mini-cave

Protection

Anchors at the top. Gear larger than hand size is not needed.

That jug has been teetering for years. Makes for an eye-opening experience the first time you grab it on lead. May 21, 2008

Be careful leading this route! Last spring I placed a cam under the overhang and the jug I was hanging from levered forward a half inch when I tugged on the cam to see if it was secure. You will be hanging on this same jug if you do the route. It's a great short route, and still worth doing, but use caution. Mar 7, 2008
