A bad ass climb on solid, beautiful rock with good gear. Jug Rash is essentially a bouldery sport climb on gear. If this route were bolted, it would see constant traffic. Pat truly found an overlooked gem with this one!
Start on a pointed block and climb to a stance on the arete under the right side of the roof. Place some gear, move up, then left with an attentive belay and be ready to fight in a great cam (.4). A big deadpoint sets you up for a good stance and gear leading into an awesome boulder problem. Powerful moves punctuated with good stances to protect follow. Head to the crack / flake then up left to the bolted anchor. This climb is outstanding.
