Access Issue: Private property with public access easement allowing climbing held by the Access Fund. Details


This is a classic Jailhouse power endurance route and a popular first 13a for many people here. It incorporates a little bit of everything, from technical sequences to big power throws and a perplexing sloping layback finish.


Right side of jailhouse, 2 routes left of the large poison oak burn scar.


8 fixed rope or chain draws to fixed anchor chains.


traverse left off the belay and than up to do the Fugitive Extension 13b, which is also known as Tommy Jones and a few other dumb name. The climbing is 12c or so. Aug 27, 2012

Jailhouse Rock is the mother of invention to the sticky rubber kneepad. The early local developer's Tony Corliss stitched a rubber pad onto a pair of baseball pants in the early 1990's, and Tommy Herbert claims he was the first to glue sticky rubber onto a neoprene kneepad at the same time frame, which is what it commonplace today. Chris Knuth brought the neoprene pad to Rifle, where the device downgraded many established hard climbs in the mid 1990's. Jan 12, 2014
