Jamcrack, Sunnyside Bench 5.9
Avg time to climb route: 45 minutes
Approach time: 15 minutes
Descent time: 15 minutes
Number of pitches: 2
Height of route: 160'
OverviewWith three or more people, it is easy to set a toprope on the first pitch, then have a novice leader and belayer ?lead? the first pitch, backed up with the toprope. If you do this, be sure to set a two-piece equalized directional before the traverse to the bolts. A belay can be set in the thin crack 10' right of the bolts (start of Pitch 2 of Lazy Bum) if crowds occupy the bolts. Linking the two pitches is not recommended due to the 20' traverse on the ledge.
