Climb the obvious corner through a short dirty section at the bottom. Negotiate through the wide start into the handcrack above and puzzle through the interesting finish to top out.


Obvious dihedral a few hundred feet before you get to Crack Attack. Seriously, if you can't find this perfect corner go back to Roadside.


Many hand size cams make this route G rated. Save a purple and green Camalot for the topout.

In no way whatsoever is this thing runout. I have no idea what Matt is talking about above, the gear is perfect all the way to the top. He probably didn't have the right gear left when he got there.

As the description says, save a .5 and .75 camalot c4 for the top section. I even placed a .4 in the top cause I was getting pumped and being a baby.

I placed roughly: 1x#.4, 2x#.5, 4x#.75, 3x#1, 4x#2, 2x#3, 2x#4(down low). If you plan your placements better than me, no quads necessary. Nothing smaller than a .4 can be placed, leave the small stuff on the ground.

This thing is absolutely a must do! Apr 17, 2017
On October 1st, my party and I removed a tree that had been plaguing this 5-star route for ~3 years. Jimmys is open for sending again boys/gals!

Yes I'm a scrub filmed it vertically...… Oct 3, 2016
Loved this route! Note that if you are not up for leading the Fibrulator (I wasn't), after doing Jim's Dihedral you can walk over and rap in off a tree to the Fibrulator anchors [small ledge] and set up a top rope on it off the quick links. Apr 19, 2012

The bottom is weird and the finish is a bit runout and weird. But the climbing between is impeccable and not to be missed. On a 5/5 scale I'd give it a 4. But on a 4/4 scale I'll round it up to 4 :) Dec 6, 2010
