Facing to the right on the spire directly in front of you as you arrive at Luther Spires, Jackass is by far the most intimidating line in the vicinity. It ascends the center of a steep face and requires a good combination of endurance, route finding and technique.

The moves are highly varied and the route is loads of fun.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Can top rope after climbing the 5.7 Janespy on the left side of the same spire.

The second bolt is far enough above the first to warrant some care. Groundfall is possible.

The mallion on the left anchor bolt was very loose when I got up to it today, I hand tightened it. If someone happens to be near this anchor with a wrench in the near future it could use some additional tightening, not sure when I'll be up there next.
