Jam It (Variation)

5.5, Trad, 100 ft,  Avg: 2.3 from 8 votes
FA: Zack Wentz and Kati Sullivan
Colorado > Boulder > Boulder Canyon > The Boulderado
Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This route uses the start of "Jam It" but traverses right to a dihedral corner crack above. Follow the face above traversing right to the anchors. It blends the rock qualities of "Jam It" and "Ho Hum" to form a varied pitch.

Protection

Standard rack, mainly nuts and some medium cams to protect the flared cracks. Bring many long runners/slings as the route traverses a bit to prevent rope drag.

[Hide Comment] This is the most convenient way to the Ho Hum anchors if you're stting up a TR for beginners. It's not that fun, but there's no rope drag. May 11, 2013
