5 out of 5 stars 5.2 is stiff

The summit pinnacle is actually pretty mellow, but I don't know if it is 5.2 mellow. Whats the real difference in 5.2 an 5.6 though? Its easier than 5.7 and the real is abundant so whatever. Its fair to say everything below the summit pinnacle is 5.2, maybe the initial poster isn't going to the table size summit block that looks and feels like it will blow away someday?

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Left car at 5 p.m., on summit just before sunset at 8:30 p.m. Back to car at 11 p.m.
Rope was nice for rap from top. Lots of loose rock everywhere but the route was pretty solid. Fun ridge scramble!

I've climbed Jack twice by this route now. It's a fun climb with alot of exposure. Know your stuff, as it is not wise to leave the gear behind.
