Fairly standard Madison river climbing. Interesting features, but nothing to write home about. Left of two routes up here.

Message me if you know route name/FA.


Hike up the gulley about 30m left of Jack Attack. At the apex, scramble up and right onto a large ledge. There are two mixed/sport routes up here.


It seems there are several ways to start this route.

1) Build a bomber anchor using #1, 2, and 3 BD cams, as the route starts by moving up and right over about 60' of exposure. Climb 15' to the obvious first bolt. From here trend left for about 20' of runout (you may be able to squeak a cam in somewhere in here) to the next bolt. From here the bolts are spaced normally. 7 bolts to chains.

2) Skip the first obvious bolt, and use the mediocre crack to place some small gear up to the first bolt ~30' up. Finish on bolts to chains.
