and finally, a shot of the short Kidd jump start


Stick-clip the stainless eyebolt, jump for the starting jug, then climb the face just left of Very Nice Crack. Close, but totally separate climbing, and an easy way to set up a TR on V Nice Crack if you don't have gear giving you a great two-for one.


three bolts to LO.

Fun mini route. Bouldery and likely a tad harder than .11a. I put together a solid cheater block so anyone 5'4"and above no longer need to jump for the opening "jug".

As the name implies, Pretty good climbing... I myself looked at bolting this back when I did The Friend Zone but I wasn't comfortable bolting so close to the crack... That being said I was happy to climb it and take advantage of the convenient TR on VNC...

First few holds after the starter jug weren't as great as they looked from the ground. Felt hard till we found a great little drop knee to get established and reach up to the really thin holds. Definitely worth climbing.
