BETA PHOTO: Start of Jane


Climb the left crack of a two-crack system past a block that looks terribly loose but isn't, up into a few chimney moves, then right and up to the easily protected overhang (crux). The face climbing above is 5.7 PG. Place directional gear, then traverse left to the Ape Call belay/rap station or right to the Raubenheimer Special tree.

Fun up to the ceiling, and a few moves above the ceiling. I actually used the first tree, maybe 50 feet up, but don't regret it.

I've finished both ways and it's much better IMHO to go to the 2nd tree. The moves on the on the upper face are thin and exciting. Too bad the route isn't longer.

Always been a bit confused about this. Is the start to jane the same as what is commonly known as the start to r.m.c.? This has the loose flake horn thing before the corner roof thing where you traverse out right? I think the proper start of R.M.C. is to the right, on the easy stacked block feature. Or does jane start more to the left of both?

I've always known RMC as the stacked blocks to the right (there's a fun move stepping onto the main face, I think).

Tim S. entered RMC, and he wrote it up as what is also described here as the start to Jane (he also noted that you can use the blocks), then a bunch of comments wrote about that loose block, so I left it as is.

The two starts are about equivalent in difficulty. Jane's higher grade comes from the moves above where it crosses and goes up right, towards Raubenheimer's.

A bit confused on the grade - The Swain guidebook has this at 5.8, MP says 5.7+, and Gunks App says 5.6? Anybody know whether Gunks App is listing a variation of the traditional line?

Great climbing all the way through the small overhang. The face above is also fun - thin and exciting, but I found myself way too high over my last gear, which was a 00 C3. May be I missed a placement in all the climbing excitement? If so it is at least PG, if not it was clearly R. Otherwise, it was a great climb, but not a good place to be if the grade is close to your lead limit. The Gunks App got the grade all wrong on this one IMHO.
