Use one of the main starts (the middle crack start is a classic) move left to the large ledge (this can be used as a belay station). Climb up the classic open book corner to a nice belay ledge on the right, either step out left and continue to the top or walk off to the right towards the top of The Great Chimney and The Cave routes.
This is a great classic and can be climbed in three (3) real micro-pitches. An excellent beginner route to start those aspiring new climbers!
This area of Jimís Wall can become quite crowded at times. Be patient with fellow climbers learning the ropes!

Recommend starting on the crack just under Jim's Throne, otherwise it's about 15-20 feet until your first gear...and it is *small* gear. Good intro corner lead for someone not used to the style.
