DescriptionJack in the Pulpit is the obvious hand crack on the face just to the right of the overhanging section. If you deep water solo the route, it's a little tricky getting out of the water and getting started. If you trad climb roped up, the last 10-15 feet are run out and sketchy until you reach the trees.
ProtectionNone needed if DWS climbing, but a little dangerous if you fall high up and don't get a good push out. When you top out, you can either jump from the top of pulpit (get a bit of a running start...people wreck themselves not jumping properly), or downclimb the gully for the jumping spot.
If trad leading, cams to #3. Can lower by rapping off a tree up top.
