Climb Jabba's spine at around 5.8 to reach the business of this route.

The harder climbing begins with a tricky throw from thin feet to pull a difficult mantle. Once the ledge is gained traverse right then around the corner.

To reach the anchors pull the roof crux; high step into an undercling, crossover right to thuggish laybacks, clip the last bolt, and finish on a cool hand rail.


This route climbs the North East corner of the Jabba buttress, right of Jabba and Sport Dike.


Bolts to fixed anchors. 70 meter rope or tie a knot in the end.
Bring plenty of alpine draws to reduce rope drag on the 5.8 leading to the crux. Strategic rope management down low makes the 5.11 finish more enjoyable.

This route can be done with a 60 meter rope, we had about 2 meters to spare. For sure, tie a knot in the end though!
