Description:

Located on the north face. Look for the huge reddish flake, identifiable by the two notorious carriage bolts that are holding it on! Originally rated 5.9+, this was once the easiest route at New Jack City, and the biggest sandbag. Tricky start, up to great flake, crimpers to the top. Very pumpy ! ! ! Very popular, local classic. ****

Like the description says, this route is pumpy. Not a good warm-up :)

4 out of 5 stars Gotta love the bolted on flakes!

Fun climb, but it seemed a bit easy for a 5.10c. Took a big chunk out of one of my fingers when my foot blew out unexpectedly!
