Description

This is one of the better routes at Manassa and was named after Jack Dempsey, the most famous person from Manassa.

The first pitch is a great warm-up (5.8) with a comfortable belay ledge.

The second pitch starts with thin face and goes to steep, bucket hauling face and ends with technical climbing.

Location

As you walk up to the lower wall (10 minutes), the route is the second bolted route right (20 feet) of the only tree on the lower face.

Protection

The first pitch takes 5 bolts and anchor. The second pitch 9 bolts and anchor. From the top anchor, rappel twice or rappel with two ropes to the ground. The route is 140 feet long.

Climbed this on 11/12/17. The first pitch is indeed a fun 5.8 warm-up. The second pitch does get a bit technical, about 5.9+ ; feels harder especially coming out of the 5.8 pitch.

It is possible to climb both pitches with one 70m rope if you go off belay about 10ft from the ground. Easy 4th Class downclimbing. If you do this, you should tie a stopper knot at the end to prevent flying off during lowering.

This route, along with many in the area, could use some housekeeping. Lots of rock fall and a few deathblocks on this wall - helmets are highly, highly recommended. Nov 13, 2017
