BETA PHOTO: Obvious line is Jam of Doom.

Description 

Pretty serious lead. The pro is tricky through the tough first 1/2, and the leader must be aware of the possible looseness of the large block looming over the left side of the climb. I highly suggest the belayer keep right, and the leader not jam or place pro under the block. There is excellent pro just under and over it. It seems solid now, but with the mining activity who knows. It's only 5.7 climbing around the block.

The line I took traverses left under the block (it seems solid until you round the corner) then up. I suggest going up over the block then right (there is pro above the block), or you can climb the gully.


Location 

First obvious route to the right of Low Hanging Fruit.


Protection 

Pro: mostly wires. Do NOT place under the big block like I did. Natural anchor, walk off same as Low Hanging Fruit.
