DescriptionLocated towards the south end of Palisade Head Laceration Jam takes an aesthetic line up a striking hand crack. The second pitch takes you up a wide crack around the corner to a belay ledge. The third and less memorable pitch takes you through a roof and up a chimney to the top.
A great route in an even better location.
ProtectionP1 The crux pitch leads up the crack, past the overhang, to an airy stance on the left. Belay takes orange tcu, .75 BD, and 3 BD. Or skip this and link into 2.
P2 Continue up into wider terrain and traverse right around the corner to a ledge with an old pin belay. Back up with pro in crack if necessary.
P3 Traverse around block and climb through an overhang (5.8) and up a chimney (5.6R) to the topo.
Rack: Singles of Orange Tcu - .75 BD, Doubles from 1-4 BD with an optional 5 for P2.
