Jacobs Ladder climbs under the roof and exits left


Use the same approach as Ant Eater or rap in off the anchor. Start the route below and right of a large block located on the upper part of the wall. Climb up a short corner to a thin crack. Place gear and continue up and left towards the block. Follow bolts and fixed pins to the roof and exit out right or pull the roof if your feeling strong.


Bolts, fixed pins, small wires, and cams will get you to the two bolt anchor.

Climbed this again yesterday. This route, like "Ant Eater", has been retro bolted since the FA. The bolts stay true to the original line. The last bolt before the anchor is in a strange spot.

This route is more sustained than it's neighbor "Ant Eater". Currently no trad gear is needed.

FA: Brian Teale/M. Weber
