Description 

Not sure why it's called Freeway Jam, as this fun face climb requires sustained edging and smearing. I should note on the traverse to the final bolt there are several flexing holds that are ready to break. A great climb nonetheless.

Location 

This climb goes directly up the middle of the slab just right of Unknown 3. See the beta photo for Unknown 3 for details.

Protection 

4 bolts and bolted anchors but I would not advise clipping these homemade hangers. It is safer to TR then walk-off west.

Bolts could use some love.
