As you approach The 5.8 Face, walk to the left between the main boulder and a separate flake. Place your crash pad against the separate flake and have fun.

Good if you want to practice jams without going to Woodson!

Great for learning to hand jam. Make sure you are solid on this one before attempting the "masochist crack."
