Description:

Powerful moves for the first three bolts, including a great gaston move, leads to easier climbing. Then face some technical climbing to reach the anchors. A good varied route.

5 out of 5 stars Finally!

It is my favorite route in Jack (and I have climbed a lot there). Entire route is hard and sustain. Hard shoulder moves into technical slab climbing to the top. I have probably tried this route about 10 times. Hard and had to work the heck out of this route.

4 out of 5 stars Tricky up top

Tried this line once a few years ago and couldn't even make the third clip. First time back on it since then, I got it second go.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful line. Unlike most Jacks!

Project. I think this route might go. Really hard intense move right off the bat, and does not ease off at all until anchor. Beautiful line!

3 out of 5 stars great gaston

Once you pull off the gaston the rest is sustained but reasonable. More like 12a.
