Description

The trainer hand crack just left of the 'Pursuit'. Graduate from this one Phi Slamma Jamma and you've earned a degree in Basic Hand Jamming. Or at least, you can transfer to a 4-year school, starting with Golden Locks.

Like Harvard, the hardest part is getting in. Some knee-scumming, jug-pulling and general grovelling should get you off the ground and into the groove. Pulling out of a cave 2/3 of the way up provides a secondary exercise, this time in off-sizes. And because you're at the T-Wall, a bit of pumpy, weathered face up top gets you to the chains.

Bonus star for being a T-Wall 5.8 that does not entail climbing a left-facing corner with a roof-dodge at the top.

Location

Right of Finagle, left of In Pursuit...

Protection

Standard rack.

Like DCA sez, name is a bit of a misnomer.

Like Rob sez, bouldery stary. The daunting face up high protects amazingly well. Superb for the grade. Feb 27, 2007
