The tree at the top of pitch one has toppled. It's hangin', slings and all, upside down over the route.

Tree is still there alright...even still one bolt remains as the "anchor" although there is a second stud. Future cleanup needs to pull the tree and build an equalized anchor. I was (Sadly) not able to do it this past weekend.

Did this route in mid September of 2011. Theres a two bolt anchor at top of the feature thats easy to reach and is really bomb. For a short route it was really fun. If you did Jam Crack and feel confident give it a shot. The whole thing is a big lieback with some good feet if you stem a little. If you have a number 4'' BD use it in the beginning.

Definately use a 4 bd at the beginning(also the crux in my opinion). I used a 3 bd because I thought a 4 would over cam it. I now have a fractured wrist because the number 3 wouldn't hold my fall haha live and learn. Top rope from jamcrack, you can swing over and set up a tr for lemon.

You don't really need a #4 on this. We found a placement for a #2 up in the initial roof. The roof move and the few feet after it are definitely the most "tenuous," after that it is cruiser hands/fist-sized lieback.
