Description

Crux is the last move of this climb. Maybe better rated as 5.12 a/b. Begin down and left of the obvious chalked ending. Weave your way through varried and fun moves to the end. The dyno is SICK. Don't be afraid to go for it as you land safe and sound onto the boulder behind every time. Nice to have a chalkbag on this one.

Location

Walk into The Maze proper, past Better Eat Your Wheaties and Meat Maker. Jingus Bells is two boulders further walking straight through. The landing in on the boulder behind the top out. The climb begins way down and left of the topout. Have fun.

Protection

One pad and an attentive spotter.

"One pad and an attentive spotter", OH Yeah, and don't blow it until you get to the throw, or else... you might want a few more pads and spotters.

Nalle H., Finish bada$$ commented in his blog that Jingus Bells was V7. Just saying. Oct 13, 2008
