BETA PHOTO: Options when climbing Jake Direct.
The second pitch of Walts Wall Route
consists of a right-trending, low-5th class ramp. Midway along the ramp, there were 2 chopped bolts on the wall to the left. The left-most bolt was replaced in 2012, which restores protection for an alternate 5.7 start to Jakes Variation (5.5).
The route description is simple. Climb the first pitch of Walts Wall Route
. Start up the ramp on the second pitch, go left to the bolt, clip it, and move a foot or so sharply left and then head up to the first bolt on Jakes Variation and finish on that route.
Comments: Starting on Friction Slide
and finishing on Jake Direct makes a fun, two-pitch 5.8 climb. Another variation leads to a 3-pitch 5.8 climb. Climb Friction Slide
belaying near the end of the first pitch of Walts Wall Route
. Move the belay about 50 feet right to the base of 5.7 Cracks
(dotted line in Beta Photo). Climb it, and finish on Jake Direct. Warning: combining Friction Slide
and Jake Direct into one pitch creates a lot of rope drag.
