Location Suggest change

There are four prominent North-South fins on the main formation of Red Rocks. The route is on the west face of the second fin from East to West. Approach from either of the third class gullies north or south of the base. The approach from the north is faster.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack to 4". The rock on JAKS is surprisingly good for Red Rocks and accepts good pro throughout.

Description Suggest change

This is the straight-in hand crack to chimney on the West Face of the Second Fin of Red Rocks Park. It is not visible from the loop trial of Red Rocks, a nice feature of the route.

While it has undoubtedly been climbed before, there is no documented ascent, no fixed gear, and no evidence of prior ascents.

JAKS gets excellent winter sun angle in the afternoon and has the feel of a desert spire with Boulder as its backdrop.
