Description 

The Dixie Cragger's Atlas gives this a 5.7 rating (and three stars), but I consider this a slight sandbag. As one fellow leader describes it, Jay Walker can be a "grunt" if you're not a proficient jammer. Smearing, stemming and chimney moves will help, but hand jams are vital, so you might want to tape up.

Starting in a long left-facing corner, Jay Walker follows two roughly parallel cracks with great protection. Climb the crack systems, then move up and left to finish at new anchors above a cave.


Location 

Starts 10' right of Finger Lockin' Good. Rap from anchors above the cave.


Protection 

Medium to large cams and tricams, hexes would probably work. Bolted anchors.

A bit painful on the hands and feet, but more staightforward than other routes of a similar grade...

This was my first ever lead about 11 years ago, and I've climbed it sveral times since then. Nice stone, mega easy to protect. The I feel that the 5.7 grade is pretty true; but I love the security of stemming in dihedrals. There are actually a pair of anchors near the small cave between Finger Lockin' Good and Jaywalker...passing the anchors to the top just gets scrubby, and turns to aggregate. *(great route to fly up and set T.R. to work out Finger Lockin' Good to the left)

I'm not a great crack climber, and found the jams solid & secure - feet got a bit painful tho! I found all the climbs at T-wall full value for the grade. What a nice climb
