Climb up an easy face to a ledge. Follow the large flake on the right until it ends then climb across the face on decent holds to a small roof, which is the most technical part of the route. Follow a crack up to good holds, and prepare for the pumpy redpoint crux that trends right then traverses left, throwing wide for a jug or using a small crimp intermediate for shorties.

To reduce rope drag, you can skip the lower face by soloing up to the right of the start and scrambling some stairs.

The old Dixie Cragger calls it 2 pitches, but the last time I climbed it, I saw no anchors on the ledge.


Jimmywood, right of Carpetbagger and Supersaturated.


10 bolts (or 6 if you skip the face)
