Illinois > Jackson Falls > B. W Falls > A. The Gallery

Description

Overhanging jug haul. A hold broke off the original line, increasing the difficulty. Keep an eye out for the no hands rest ~2/3 of the way up!

Location

After you reach the Gallery, walk right around the corner and you will find this glorious overhanging jug haul. You'll know the line when you see it, if its a weekend you'll know it by the line on the ground. First bolted route right of the obvious "Squirrel House Crack."

Protection

6 bolts + anchors.
