Description 

Jericho Wall is a fun/obscure moderate grade V in the shade. Mellow nailing (95% beaking), Bolted anchors, and a big ledge on P4 and P9 make it a good candidate to do in summer without a portaledge. You rappel the route to descend.

The 2nd ascent party cleaned the majority of the loose blocks, but this route is still fresh and should be treated as so.

Protection 

Updated Rack as per the 2nd ascent party:

9 beaks, 3ea #1-#3
2 LA's, 1ea short/long
3 angles, 1ea 1/2"-3/4"
Nuts- 2 ea regular and micro
Cams- 3 ea .3-2"
2 ea 3-4"
1 ea 5"

2 heads, 1ea #2, #3
Hooks-All
Camhooks
6 wire rivet hangers (some rivets do not accept Keyhole hangers)


Rap the route as follows:

The first Rap from the summit is double rope, the next two rappels are single rope. From P8 to the deck is double rope rappels.

If carrying 70m ropes, P8 to P6 is 220'.
