Description

Nice Jugs is surprisingly clean and solid! The start can be hard if you don't get the sequence right.

Location

This is the route to the left of The Undercling.

Protection

This is well-protected with bolts painted black. It had biners at the lowering anchor when I climbed it.

Per eli poss: this has 5 bolts and two sets of bolted anchors.

I think this has gotten harder since i first climbed it, around a year ago, maybe .8+ now because the holds, especially crux start holds, are getting greasier. it will probably only continue to get harder.

History:
The first ascent was done by former CTA student Ella Yenigun, and this is where the route get its name. Also, it has 5 bolts and two sets of bolted anchors, although the higher anchors are seldom used. Jul 14, 2014

Watch out for a wasps' nest in a pocket over and to the right of the bulge at the third bolt. It's easy to reach blindly over the bulge and into the nest. Better off getting a little higher stance, peeking over the bulge, and finding a clean pocket. There are 3-4 good options. Or staying left near the bolt. Otherwise, really fun climb. Aug 19, 2014
The wasps are still there. Jul 22, 2017

The gnarly looking block halfway up reminds me of the chunk that came off Psycho Billy. Just my two cents. Apr 8, 2018
