This intermittent thin crack in a sort of right facing flake system takes the line immediately to the right of Friendly Hands, passing a single bolt (old, not confidence inspiring) in the vicinity of the crux. While the old bolt on this route has been replaced, it is still a heads-up lead. The Vogel guide gives this 5.10b, consensus will likely settle a bit higher. Although short, the climbing is fairly continuous with a very distinct crux.


On the right side of the east face of Jimmy Cliff, starting in the same place as Friendly Hands and taking the thin crack/flake and face line about 5' to the right. There is a lone bolt at 2/3 height.


Emphasis on thin stuff...small wires and cams, one bolt (1/2" SS). There is a two-bolt anchor/rap station (1/2" SS) on the ledge.

Kevin Powell, Frank Bentwood and I replaced the bolt with a 1/2 inch diameter stainless steel bolt, December 2009.

The two 1/4 inch button heads at the anchor were also replaced with 1/2 inch diameter stainless steel bolts and rings. Dec 12, 2009
Thanks! Jan 7, 2010
