Jersey Turnpike - OPEN PROJECT 

The aptly named Jersey turnpike (As in that drink you make out of all the old drinks sitting around after a party, the one that will make you hate life!) We chose this name because this problem sits smack in the middle of a pretty heinous patch of poison oak... so tread with care or you too will be "hatin' life" ....

This problem is currently an unsent project, but its such a cool line it deserved a place here on MP. Come mustered for over-hanging crimps and edges leading to a hair-raising roll-over onto the upper slab section.

There are two starting options here...

A. Starting low and right, use the arete and a series of edges to move up... or,

B. Starting to the left use a set of semi-dubious face-level crimps to move straight up...

Once at the top of the arete, make the roll onto the slab and step careful towards the top. Don't bail here or you will land right in the patch of pain.

While most of the bottom moves have been worked on both lines, the upper section has bouted all comers, for that reason this set of lines remains un-done.

Git on it!

Protection 

You'll want a couple pads for this, and you might consider throwing down a tarp to cover up any potential poison oak encounters. But its worth it, this is a dope problem!
