Description

A left variation off the start of 'Cracker Jack Kid' that follows an obvious splitter crack/seam on face above, to a finish ledge. Climb/boulder first 3 bolts of CJK. Jug a bit left then climb vertical crack/seam to the ledge. Hardest moves are in the CJK start, but a crux move at end of upper crack guards the top. No fixed anchor to rap or lower from so either build anchor before you climb it by getting belayed across ~50' 5th class ledge up top; or go for it and carry extra gear for anchor once you send the thing and pull onto the ledge. Gear for anchor: cams 2",1", 0 and 00 TCU, plus a few small nuts, plus long slings. Do not install any new fixed anchor/bolts, per Cumberland Trail State Park guidelines for the Laurel-Snow area. It's only a little extra work to deal with the anchor, and if you like the line it's worth it.

Location

Far left side of main Laurel Crag; same start as Cracker Jack Kid. See notes on anchor above for descent.

Protection

Mixed. Quickdraws to start, then very light rack of cams from 2"-finger size. Build natural anchor on ledge (see note in description above). Again, do not install any new fixed anchor/bolts, per Cumberland Trail State Park guidelines for the Laurel-Snow area.
