Ed gets an early start on
Jiffy Pop (5.10)

Short crack to a pretty dihedral with interesting moves. A lot of popcorn like stuff about 25 feet up but it does not negatively affect the experience. BE CAREFUL ON THE CLEAN AS YOU WILL SWING ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE COVE AND SMACK THE WALL OR THE CACTUS. Probably a good idea to stay clipped to your belayers side of the rope.
Just past the gully that separates Slate Nation from Finland in a small cove with a short saguaro on the left side. Also, a head high gray boulder at the back of the cove. Starts in a crack then angles left to dihedral.

Very fun with interesting positions and a great illusion of exposure at the top. If you find 5.10 tough then you might feel this lead is a bit on the spicy side.
