Wander your way up along the crack to anchors on the ledge.


Jimmywood. Look for a wandering crack system starting just to the left of the popular sport route Mammy.


standard rack, anchors at top

Would be a better route if it wasn't so short. Easy 8.

10/10/2015 - one of the anchors have been chopped. I couldn't tell until I got to the top. So I traversed over to an anchor 15' to the right and belayed a second up. We then both rapped. Fun route. Bummer that it required so much hassle.

Hand jams solid enough to cut circulation to my fingers while I was futzing with gear. There's a horizontal crack slightly above the singular bolt for a microcam if you want to back up the single bolt for a little while.
