This near vertical route is super thin and very balancy with a very tricky sequence in the middle. This is not for the faintest of heart. If you have just started leading 5.11+ this is not a route for you. But if you are comfortable leading 5.11+ then go ahead and try it. If it wasn't for the gear anchor this would get more attention.
Jack ripper goes up the slab just to the right of Peyote Pump. To get down you can scramble down the fourth class ramp or hike to the top and rappel off Peyote Pump. (Easier to down climb fourth class)
This is a sport route so you will need four draws. you will need some small gear to set up an anchor.
