Start from pedestal left of the formation's corner, step right around the corner to a hidden dihedral, climb the dihedral, then finish up a short, enjoyable jam crack. Crux is a couple of moves getting up dihedral.


Standard rack.


Jewels is a good "A1" for February gear-placing practice (although I have a vague memory of using some sort of hook, and maybe a free move or two in the middle, just for spice). Aug 17, 2015

Maybe I was trying to stay too low, but traversing in from the left felt harder than 5.7 (and scary on lead!), but coming from the right on Gravel Pit felt honest at the grade, and was enjoyable. Mar 9, 2015

Wonderfully sustained!

A #2 ballnut works great! for the first crux move. You can also fish in a very narrow nut, but its more work.

Starting from the left pedestal, I think "5.7" is a sandbag. If you don't see the move, you can also start from "Gravel Pit" on the right, and traverse in. Jun 4, 2013

Be careful on lead. The lower section has a decent runout when rounding the corner. The rest can be sewn up using small nuts or mirco cams. Overall great climb. Sep 9, 2012
I have found this to be an enjoyable 5.7 that looks harder than it is. If you are climbing at this level it is worth checking out. Apr 21, 2008
