Description

Jaws is among the hardest climbs at Tres Piedras, at mid-5.12. It is a bit out-of-character with the area. Here's why: The crux is overhanging and bouldery. It's a fully bolted sport climb. The bolts are close enough at the hard parts that it's never scary. It has significant lichen. Still, it is a fun climb and deserving of more attention. Jaws is shaded all day.

After 2 bolts of 5.8 climbing, gain a lichen-covered slab, angle left to its apex. Pull through a roof onto a slightly overhanging face, just to the right of the arete. This has great position! It stays sustained with small holds almost all the way to the anchor, and is a little hard to read (especially if it stays unchalked). You can step left to a rest on the arete a couple of moves early.

Location

This is the bolted climb on the North Side of Mosaic Rock (called Raven's Wall) around the corner to the left of Danger Mouse.

Protection

9-10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. No trad gear.
