As of 12/15 there were 3 brand new looking bolts at the shared anchor for the pinnacle (traverse right from where the crack ends - you'll see it). Fun route - powerful moves on super featured rock. Dec 16, 2012

There was indeed a chopped bolt just at the top of the climb where the crack bends left. Maybe the bolts I was supposed to use were at the very top if we chose to climb the 5.10 variation? Oct 10, 2011

The bolts have not been cut off. They are still there. Apr 29, 2011

Awesome route! I wasn't ready for the pump I felt and took my first lead fall just bellow the flake. Fell on a #2C4 and it safe and clean! I finished the beautiful climb and will be itching to go back for the red point. As of 10/30/10 (when we climbed it) the bolts had been cut off at the top. We slung a horn with webbing and backed up by a well placed stopper to rappel off the back side. Nov 5, 2010
I led the Jam this past Saturday, and the mindset I had was to place pro either below or above the pod/flake area. There are plenty of solid placements above and below. And the flake provides great hands for placing.

Gorgeous route! Aug 2, 2010

I can verify Frank's comment. I was leading Strawberry Jam yesterday, stuck a blue #3 Camalot into the wide spot under the flake and it looked and felt like a perfect placement. I climbed past it, fell, and the cam popped. No problem. I had more gear in the main crack below but won't place under that flake again. Nov 16, 2009

Use care when leading. I have herd that the flake moves/flexes and if you fall, it may rip out your pro. Feb 9, 2009
