BETA PHOTO: Double Jeopardy follows the dihedral to a large le...
Double Jeopardy is just south of the Great Chimney and is somewhat easily located. Look for the most inviting dihedral amongst about 4-5 dihedrals on this wall. About 25 feet up there is a large tree growing from a ledge. Start out on easier terrain. Once you reach the tree the angle steepens. The first real diffuculty occurs below a hanging chimney. Go left of the chimney and surmount a large ledge with a dead fallen tree trunk on it. Pass the trunk and find the crux, a steep face which can be a bit of a puzzle to figure out. If leading, be sure to use your slings wisely to avoid rope drag.
Standard rack with a couple long slings.

The bottom was somewhat dirty for me, but climbing past the two chalk stones in the chimney was fun and there was plenty of pro.
