Really fun route, and one of the easiest of the "main area" climbs at the Jailhouse. Start on a pillar just to the left of a bush with red flowers that lives about ten feet up the wall. The crux is a short but bouldery sequence around the fifth bolt. Sustained climbing through three more bulges gets you to the anchors. Most of the holds are jugs, but there are a few tricky moves mixed in here and there.
A good route to help build the endurance and knee-barring proficiency that are critical on the harder routes at the Jailhouse.
About fifty feet left of where the approach trail intersects the wall. Look for a bush with small red flowers about ten feet up the wall. This climb is just its the left.

Heads up as of 11/22/13:
The 4th to last bolt's nut is spinning off AND both the 3rd & 2nd to last fixed quicklinks (on the hangers) have unscrewed all the way and apparently have been loaded enough while open to bend and could not be finger-tightened...we did not have any tools that day.
On a good note, none of the multiple super hollow big blocks fell out on us. The starting hold at the beginning of the overhang, where a brick recently broke, is rather crunchy. Iron Junkie haha classic!
