Description:

"The first lead for lots of people, but you should be a solid 5.7 climber because there is a fair distance between bolts and the rock is low angle enough that you don't want to fall. One of the most popular climbs at the cliff. Great warm-up. 60 feet tall." ~ MacNamara Spring-loaded clips at bolted anchor to lower off. Can toprope Jackass 5.11c by moving right from Jane Spy's anchor to two bolts without chains or rings.

4 out of 5 stars Great rock, lengthy spacing

It was lengthy between bolts, but the climb itself was relatively straight-forward. This was my 2nd lead (same day, same grouping) and was really a joy. Great feet and some solid hands with a portion in the middle that makes you go hmmmmm, but either direction is a solid route to the 3rd bolt.

The view is awesome, but the sun gets pretty hefty in the early afternoon. I suggest hitting the trail by 9AM in the summer for the best and least dehydrating approach.
