Description

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

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

Protection

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