Jack in the Pulpit, 5.8. Lake Placid, NY.

Description 

Jack in the Pulpit is the obvious hand crack on the face just to the right of the overhanging section. If you deep water solo the route, it's a little tricky getting out of the water and getting started. If you trad climb roped up, the last 10-15 feet are run out and sketchy until you reach the trees.

Protection 

None needed if DWS climbing, but a little dangerous if you fall high up and don't get a good push out. When you top out, you can either jump from the top of pulpit (get a bit of a running start...people wreck themselves not jumping properly), or downclimb the gully for the jumping spot.

If trad leading, cams to #3. Can lower by rapping off a tree up top.
