Starts about 15ft right of The Jackal, and heads straight up the face to the first pitch chains used for The Jackal.


Start about 15ft right of The Jackal.


Gear is sparse and what you get ain't that good. though I do remember getting a funky endwise hex in at one point. Just don't fall and nothing has to catch you right?

Yeah, I hung on the crux move on that on toprope, couldn't imagine leading it. I watched both Scottie G. and Tom P. lead it though, Tom looked gripped and powered through it quickly, Scottie looked cool as cucumber as usual, took his time and gave that famous sh*t eating grin afterwards.

Phil, didn't Nigro do the FA of this?, maybe it was on toprope, we used to send a belay slave up Jackal (sometimes me) and play around on that face all afternoon. I'm pretty sure this route was pre inspected on top rope, not a ground up 1st time lead. Jun 30, 2008
This is an old Tom Pulaski first ascent. Very bold in the old days. Still is today. Jun 30, 2008

The mind is a terrible thing to waste! Come to think of it, the ascent by Tom mentioned above may have been the FA. (read bleu haze!)

Will, Phil is right about Tom and the FA. Looks like you are pushin the hard stuff, love your pics and comments! Keep pullin hard.

Pulaski used to have an interesting way to rate climbs. The S system.
It was based on how many shits you had to take. S1 being fairly easy up to S7 you are going to die.
Cake walk would have been an S3 route for Tom that is. Jul 31, 2008
