Description Suggest change

The Dixie Cragger's Atlas gives this a 5.7 rating (and three stars), but I consider this a slight sandbag. As one fellow leader describes it, Jay Walker can be a "grunt" if you're not a proficient jammer. Smearing, stemming and chimney moves will help, but hand jams are vital, so you might want to tape up.

Starting in a long left-facing corner, Jay Walker follows two roughly parallel cracks with great protection. Climb the crack systems, then move up and left to finish at new anchors above a cave.

Location Suggest change

Starts 10' right of Finger Lockin' Good. Rap from anchors above the cave.

Protection Suggest change

Medium to large cams and tricams, hexes would probably work. Bolted anchors.
