Apple Jam is like Devil's Tower; it is a good jamming crack, & each bolt is easy to clip.... Between each bolt is like safely bouldering a new problem. Just about each clip is at a jamming rest.
This climb shares the first bolt of The Apple Bites Back. Using a single locker on the first is safe. Clipping the bolts is easy, but... each tricky location is above each bolt. So, the crack takes good pro & is not over bolted.
If you are not a bolted crack climber, bring pro to a #2 1/2 Friend (small hexes & large soppers are good).

There is a sport bolted crack to the right of "The Apple Bites Back".... I believe the climb described here was retrobolted.
