Description [Suggest Change]

On the right side of Rock of Ages are two routes that end on the same anchor. The Joker is the left route and has a crux bulge about 20 feet off the deck. The route remains high quality and fun climbing. The final headwall is negotiated by pinching large to small chert knobs.

Location [Suggest Change]

Far right side of Rock of Ages. The Joker is the left of route of two routes that go to the same anchor at the top of the fin. See the beta picture.

Protection [Suggest Change]

17 bolts and sport anchors. A 60 meter rope just gets you back to the ground. Tie knots in the end of your rope as a precaution.
