Start as if doing "Mark Hamill's" (sound's a little kinky!), move immediately left.


This is just to the left of "Mark Hamill's Face" and is toproped off of separate anchors.


2 Fixe anchors with[out] screw links.

This route grabbed its name because this dude that works for Jefferson County was cruising around killing weeds that didn't belong in the area, and on his second pass, we chatted it up. After Jim left, he came back carrying this little plant. He said it is called, "Myrtle Spurge"...thus, "Jim's Myrtle Spurge".

Fun route...

The white sap of the spurge is caustic. I'd glove up to handle it.

This route is fun and worth doing if you are in the area. The description says the bolts at the anchor have "screw links" which likely means quicklinks, but there are none. You can rap from Mark Hamill's Face just to the right.
