Description 

This is the only bolted route on the steep east face of the Leaning Tower. A difficult boulder problem at the 3rd bolt leads to easier climbing through huecos to the difficult (crux) face climbing above. It gets a little run (safe but a long fall) just after the crux.

Protection 

8 bolts, chain anchor

When Randy came thru during the 2nd and 3th seasons, he quickly sent everything we had back then. I asked him if he would put up something, he looked around a little and didn't see anything he liked. So I took him around to some of my unfinished projects, he liked the looks of this thing. Randy cleaned it some more (it was still loose and breaking), moved around a few bolts and sent the Master of None.

My special thanks to the true "Master of All", Randy.

Jack Marshall,
The thanks goes to you, who have tirelessly put up so many great routes, for so many people to climb, at so many areas. I was going to say that you deserve more credit, then I remembered that it is, after all, called "New Jack City". I'll still say it Jack, you deserve more credit. BTW, the route was named for a twist on the name that first came to me, "Jack Of All Trades". I thought "Master of None" was more strange and thought provoking.

Jack & Randy,

Well done, both of you. Many thanks for ALL the great routes you have established. Nice back story on the origins of the route and the name, Randy.
