Description

The unrepeated problem Jenny Craig begins on the left side of an 80 degree slab and traverses up and right towards an arete, at which point it steers upwards to the top. The hands are deceivingly poor during the traverse and the feet are downright miserable. As you get higher on the problem, the rock quality gets poorer and has broken during subsequent attempts resulting in at least one sketchy fall. However, I guess that's what you should expect from a hard unrepeated slab.

Considering the inobvious nature of the line, and the lack of additional feedback and ascents, I've given it only one star.

Location

Jenny Craig is found easily if one starts at the Bierstadt Corridor and walks down valley for 20 yards, then walks directly south (uphill) towards the talus and the looming walls above. Find the 80 degree slab facing downhill towards the willows when you reach the maze of jumbled talus blocks just before Public Execution begins to come into view.

Protection

A few Organics and a spotter would be helpful, since the problem begins with a rising traverse before finishing up on the far right.
