Aiden TRing Jam and Jelly


This route is a pretty nice intro to Red Wing gear climbs. It's easy but getting slicker by the season from all the traffic, esp. since the start is shared by Kelly's Arete to the left. Anyway, the climb is okay, but a tiny bit sketchy for the first 10 feet due to slickness factor. Protects easily. Easy after the ledge.

See photo, thanks Kris.


#3 cam or similar hex in the wide crack down low and then a smaller one near the ledge. Smaller Camalot or medium nuts on the upper section. Protects well and the rock is good. You can see the whole route from the base and can figure out what to bring. Chains/biners at the top for anchor. Use your own biners to toprope and replace any biners at the top that look bad! The old ones will look rad on your backpack.

Protects fine. The first 10 feet or so are strenuous for the grade. A few loose bits of rock.

Lots of loose gravel at the top ledge. Belayer beware. #1 camalot and .75 is what I used to protect the bottom. Very slick. Good climb none the less.

Route is pretty easy after my second ascent of it. I remember sewing it up the first time, yet this time I only placed two hexes. The bottom is for sure the crux. Once you're off the ground your fine. There is actually a 5.11 continuation at the top that I recommend if you want a little more spice. Once you get to the anchors look up and follow the bolts to the summit, a rare treat at Red Wing to reach the summit. BEWARE of loose rock on the ledge at the anchors.

There is a line of bolts above Jam and Jelly. They continue over the roof above the ledge full of loose rock. They end at the top of the bluff at some nice new anchors. Are these the bolts for The Go Between, or a Jam and Jelly continuation? Anyone know?

Jam and Jelly kind of angles up and left from the ledge, and The Go Between line of bolts starts at this ledge but about 5 feet right of the crack and goes straight up, if I remember right. So if there is a line of bolts that starts directly above the finish of Jam and Jelly (over to the left), that should not be The Go Between.
