Description Suggest change

Jim Dandy is just fun. The first pitch is so-so, but the second pitch angles up and out onto the exposed face via some steps and ramp-ish features to a short crack. From the second belay, it's 4th class to the ledge. You can finish via My Route (recommended) or the Block Route (also recommended, but shorter). You can also scramble off the ledge and hike back around to the base if you plan on doing any of the other East Face routes.

This is a great route for introducing beginners to multi-pitch climbing and exposure.

Pitches 1 and 2 are heavily bolted so being lots of quickdraws as well as trad gear. Pitch 3 end diagonally right from the anchor at the top of pitch 2. Do not climb straight up the black stone directly in fromt of pitch 2's belay ledge as it leads to lots of moss and lichen.

Location Suggest change

A few yards right of Peek-a-Boo climb the clean face to a ledge with a large tree.

Protection Suggest change

Light rack and bolts. Take long runners.

Each belay has bolted anchors.
