Jam on It is an excellent handcrack in the rappel gully off the back side of the Pear. It is located just to the left of the rappel, and is the obvious vertical splitter. Climb the continuous line passing a crux low, and another at a bulge near the top.

Alternatively, a TR can be set up with hand sized gear in the crack which tops out just left of the summit anchors (left when facing cliff inside corridor). A good addition to the day if already topping out on the Pear.


TR after topping out on the Pear. Otherwise, bring a standard rack. Mainly hand sized pieces are useful.

What a sweet little gem this is!! But ya gotta be there for a reason. It seemed sufficient to have 2 x #1, 2 x #2, 2 x #3, 1 #4. The rock looks and feels like Long's/Diamond rock, and is just as steep, too. Good fun.

This was a fun pitch. The corridor went into full shade after 12. A nice contrast to the usual Lumpy slabby, flare crack. This is vertical to gently overhanging and a continuous crack.

I'm sure people had been toproping these cracks long before the recorded ascent, which I infer was a lead. I think that leads, not topropes, must be done to claim first ascents. Even I have toproped this — more than once.
