A nice warmup that builds a little pump by the time you clip the anchors.


Leftmost route on the lower (Crackin' the Cherry) wall.


Bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

This is a really fun short route on a separate little face left of Red Chili about 75’. Solid 5.10a. Stick clip the first bolt, a fall here would not be good. Great incuts and jugs just wish it were about 3 times longer!
An update... Red Chili the route 2 routes to the right of this one, now has its own anchor. The route just to the left of Red Chili has been cleaned up with a direct well protected start and a well protected finish added. All bolt protected. It’s 5.10 a/b down low and easier higher up. Sep 29, 2017

3 bolts. Fun warm up. If you follow the bolt line straight up from the ground it is definitely 10a. Probably can be made 9+ if you stay right at start and finish. Aug 26, 2014

Ethan Davis, that line is called 'Log Jammin'' and it is indeed a 5.9. If you have no gear to place, you can link up with 'Red Chili' once you've run out of bolts, since they finish on the same anchors anyway.

For those looking for this route, 'Power Trip', read Trevor Bowman's comment, as his description of this wall is accurate. Aug 16, 2014

I climbed the route left of Power Trip a couple days ago. It's bolts past a right facing dihedral and then easy climbing to a pod. Place gear in the pod and climb straight out the top until one bolt on Power Trip and then the anchors. An okay climb. Felt about 5.9 to me. Aug 12, 2013

I get the impression this thing gets confused often with Red Chili, which is the longer (and better) line about 50' or so to the right on nice gray rock. Power Trip is on an isolated buttress on the far left side of the first band. It is short (3 bolts) and vertical and offers some cool moves up big edges and brown blocky bands. The rock isn't the greatest, but the climbing is worthwhile.
I believe the route you're asking about Michael is a line called "Log Jammin", which is immediately left of Red Chili. Haven't been on it, so don't know what it's about, but it always looked kinda silly... Sep 23, 2009

Anyone know what the route, or beginning of a route, is just left of Power Trip? There are four bolts down low and then nothing. Is it gear from there? Connect with Power Trip? Or, an unfinished line? Jul 24, 2008
