The physical crux is down low, but the mental crux is the upper slab. Pull a couple easy moves to the crux. Pull over the lip to super thin and technical slab climbing at it's finest.


twenty feet right of Big Wall Greg's Chicken Shack


Around five bolts.

This is a classic technical slab! Nov 28, 2010
Sandbagged! The feet are poor at the second bolt; falling guarantees a deck. Once you're over the roof (10d?), the hands disappear and there are no feet (11a?). Every single move on Venom was at least 5.10d. FWIW, I fell twice on this route, yet onsighted:
The Reckoning (5.12a)
Wild at Heart (11b)
Barbarians at the Gate (12a)
Blue Velvet (11+)
The Drifter (11a)
Yuppie with a Gun (11a)
Piss Ant (11b), &
Stinger Direct (11a/b)

In general, Jackson Falls grading seems arbitrary; for example, how is the completely horizontal roof route Who Let the Snakes Out a 5.10b?

Overall, enjoyed the climbing, but the grading was generally arbitrary. Aug 31, 2015
