J5 starting Jugular Vein in 80s style


Fun jug-hauling up a steep section of Relief Camp. Start on a ramp and traverse right to gain the route. Pull through a series of overhanging moves on good holds, clipping an extended bolt with a chain on it, before reaching the anchor.


Starts on the obvious right-trending ramp just up and right from where the trail comes in. Stay straight to avoid the 10b which forks to the left about half-way up.


6 bolts

Was out there on 06/04/2017. Big foothold near the start blew out, another one of the 'spikes' at start is loose, and a handhold near the start came out. It feels roughly the same grade to start but would definitely stick clip the first bolt in case more rock comes off.

Also, there's a smallish alcove halfway up the route with a loose block as well (someone chalked an 'X' into it)
