The route starts in a rain gully just right of a significant crack. Move up through the slab start that has been cleaned of moss and aims upward towards a flake that presents ample under cling opportunities, or stay left in the rain gully and step across to the flake. The first problem is at the under cling: move either up and left around the bulge above (easier), or over it. The next problem is 2 bolts higher with a slight bulge to work through. There are ample good holds to move through this and take you up to a small ledge where you can push straight up at bolt 9 or move right and step around as you move past bolt 10.
Good holds and foot placements abound here: insets, ribs, pockets and jugs. The route is a very nice route for those that are relatively new to lead sport climbing and are comfortable leading 5.6. The bolting is generous and the locations allow for strong foot placements while clipping.
The route parallels then joins with East Face Cracks and shares bolts 8 and 9 with that route.
PB & J is on the low east face of Big Rock right of a prominent crack (East Face Cracks, 5.7 T) and left of Clean Sweep (5.9, T).
