Description Suggest change

This is one of the better single pitch jamcracks of its grade in the Mount Washingtom Valley. Continuous hand-jamming up a round edged crack in a big left-facing dihedral. Exit left to a ledge before the top of the cliff, where you can rap off a tree with one rope, or continue to the top and bushwhack right to walk off.

Location Suggest change

On the right end of the cliff, 50 feet or so right of the route Three Wogs, where the approach "trail" reaches the crag. Three Wogs is identifiable by three spaced bolts in a shallow groove. You can't miss Bandit if you're on the right side of the cliff.

Protection Suggest change

There are a few pitons but it takes bomber gear the whole way. Rap off a tree on a ledge before topping out, or walk off right.
