Jack Of All Trades

5.9, Trad, 90 ft (27 m),  Avg: 3.5 from 2 votes
FA: E. + L. Stefke, Nov. 2018
California > Sierra Eastside > Bishop Area > Pine Creek Canyon > Outpost

Description

Scramble up from the ground to the base of the trough (several different ways).  The climb starts here (it's possible to sling the pillar/hole for the belayer).  Move up the trough past two bolts to a third bolt.  The crux is just above.  Climb up the thin crack or move out to the left a bit on good face holds.  Two ring anchor just right of the small bush above.
This route requires a number of different skills, from thin crack to liebacks, smearing, and face moves.

Location

This climbs the prominent trough located about 25 yards to the right of Shadow Dance.

Protection

Gear to 2" (with an emphasis on 3/8-3/4" pieces), 3 bolts, ring anchor
