Jacob taking it all in on Eastbound & Down

Description 

Sit start as per "Boy Named Sue" but off of the start climb right, two or three moves, to the flat jug.

From the flat jug climb direct (you will be to the right of the close pine now) and up the tall face to top out just to the right of the close pine that is to the right of "A Boy Named Sue".

This line work up from the flat low jug ledge past big moves, pinches and a few crimps and open hand holds. Once you overcome and stand on the bulge, just a few moves separate you from the juggy top out.

--Note: There are at least two "suspect" flakes that would be wise to avoid on this line. I did not remove them as I did not rappel down before climbing the problem. One is a palm sized flake that isn't needed, and another was a nearby thin-faced crimp that also wasn't needed. Be careful and please inspect the line before climbing, but they are easily noticed.
