This is a variation to the 2nd pitch of Captain Jack. I made up the name because I cannot find the info and because there are already to many "Unknowns" in the area. This is a better way to finish Captain Jack. From the belay ledge on the 1st pitch, continue up the corner/gully to the right until the first bolt becomes obvious, follow 5 bolts to the top, build an anchor(slung block), and walk off.


This is a 2nd pitch variation to Captain Jack.


Standard rack, 5 bolts, long sling for top anchor.

Solid for the grade compared to many new 5.7's. Worth doing. EZ walk off. Jun 16, 2016
sounds to me like "steve the pirate" is probably the old "wind up" variation to "locomotive breath" (see "six pence-aqualung history).
If that's the case, I am over my jethro tull era, the names "s.t.p." and "aqualung" are fine with me. However, I would like to see "six pence" return to " locomotive breath".
