Dave in the middle of Jim's Crack

Description 

Starts off broken ledges with rotten flakes. Not lead very often, though it does happen. Follow crack system up using face holds and jams. There is a cool section in the middle with "huggy flake". Fun, long pitch if you don't mind some choss thrown in for flavor.


Location 

About two hundred feet south of main ampitheater.


Protection 

You name it once you look at it! An assortment of cams, some of which should be quite large. Wires.

This route is named after Jim Ronnigen, one of the original North Shore Climbers ca. 1975-7. It was led, on-sight by Jim and Steve Mabely in 1976.
