  • Description 

    Jazz is the first route that starts around the corner to the right of Qs. Stick clip the first bolt. Layaways, face holds, and finger jams take you past the first bolt (crux) and to a strenuous second clip. Make a big, somewhat awkward, move left to the corner. Then climb up to the third bolt and the easier climbing that takes you to the anchor.

    Protection 

    Four bolts plus anchors. Stick clip first bolt.

    Fun little route that packs a punch for how short it is. Definitely stick clip the first as the crux moves are stepping off the boulder and into the opening sequence. Pretty powerful climbing in a small package. This route would clean up nicely with more ascents, but unfortunately the hang kind of sucks with the road 20 feet below you....

    Do this route. Super fun for the grade. (Pink point beta: hang draws on the 12 via the 5.9 anchors.)

    The crux isn't off the start...or boulder. It's keeping the pump low till the top. One good rest below the last bolt.
