Description

The namesake route for this wall- Jacob's Wall is a feisty little 5.8.
Jeff and Glenn did all the routes here and to the left at the Cage in 1998.
Make sure you figure out the crux start so as to not fall before reaching the little corner after a balancy few moves with scant protection.
I tried going straight up the slab at the start to reach good holds sooner, much harder, best to come in from the left and traverse right, not too high.

Location

You could hike in from the upper North corner of the Malamute, coming to the Cage area with 3 slab climbs, then 5 bolted routes on Jacob's Wall with this being next right. It happens to be directly above Quagmire crack, and that is how we found it.

Protection

there are 2 bolts mid way up the slab, follow a dyke up and right after the initial corner. A few cam placements and tree sling options.

Hardest part of this climb is the start as it is a bit bouldery. Climb up the big flake to the right of the climb and you can see the bomber jugs that you need to get to. After the start the climbing is significantly easier and protects well. May 12, 2016
