Front on view of Best Jams


Obvious crack that widens at the top. No real defined crux, just continuous jams all the way to the top.


Left of the bolted line, on the right end of the ampmhitheater.


Cams only .75-4 , use chain anchors as for neighboring sport route

Wisco crack is good! Probably not the best jams in the state but well worth the ride.

Wisco crack is amazing! Loved it! Solid jams through a nice overhang in the middle.

^ Not 5.8. Definitely felt like 5.9+ to me. The rock is really solid and room for gear anywhere! Go do it!
