Renamed at the request of Jack Marshall, this crag has routes developed by Scott Cosgrove, Geoff Fullerton and Jack Marshall. It's part of the Cliffs of Insanity area and is the first crag you reach on the approach.

Getting There 

Trail on Google Maps. Its a long approach from the West Canyon parking lot. you can also hike over the ridge from the East Canyon parking lot. Take the Twin towers trail and go up the gully left of Hard Rock Cafe and Slab City. When you reach the giant undeveloped slab at the top, go right and hug the formation on your left up and over the ridge. Keep heading left as you go down. There is one 6' scramble right before you reach the first route of the crag.

This is an overlooked gem and would receive more traffic if people knew it existed. A pure power endurance route on mostly positive holds. No tricks or gimmicks like other hard routes at New Jack. The route is sustained at the V4 to V5 level with a few semi-rests along the way. The hardest single move is probably clipping and moving past the 3rd bolt. However, the upper half of the route has a couple distinct boulder problems thrown in back-to-back and finishes with some small sequential holds t...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
