Some people call this route Ponders of Persuasion, but according to the first ascentionist's entry in the log on top, its Powders of Persuasion. P1: A short and easy crack to the left of the huge leaning pillar. 5.8 P2: This pitch is probably where the route got its name from. Its got a fair share of sandy offwidthing, but there also plenty of feet outside of the crack. The crux is getting into an akward slot and then making an exciting reach to the right. .10+ P3: The business. Up the impressive dihedral that is probably the most striking (or at least, obvious) feature on all the Bridger Jacks. There is not a single move that is harder then 5.10+/.11-, but this pitch is long and sustained. It starts out with some cups and goes to tight hands and finishes on ringlocks and fingers (they are not as hard as the tight hands below). There is not a fixed anchor at the end of this pitch, but some finger pieces will do just fine. P4: Several possibilities exist here. We went up and to the left. Squirily face climbing that's not hard, but doesn't offer great gear. Rappel down King of Pain rap.
