Jabba the Hut

5.11c, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 3.5 from 20 votes
FA: Brian Mullin, '88
Colorado > San Luis Valley > Penitente Canyon > Penitente - Inner Canyon


Though it might not look too spectacular, this is among the best 11s in the canyon. The holds are not sharp, the climbing is interesting and the rock is great. It's way better than Rocketman, that you always see people on.


Past the Virgin there is a blob of rock where a boulder has cracked and sluffed off a few feet - the resulting crack is Jabba's mouth. Stand back, cross your eye's and you'll see it.
