FA of Jolt Train with Eric & Darren.

Description 

Good climb in an old-school kind of way. This must be cleaned by a second that follows the route.

The chockstones in the very back of the cave have not been tested and don't look good. The obvious chockstone in the middle of the roof has supported full body weight.

Location 

Starts inside the deep hobo cave near where the trail hits the crag and climbs chimney/wideness up and out. Once you hit vertical follow the obvious left leaning crack to chains (shared with the 5.9 Phil's Route on the left).

Protection 

Some big cams including a #5 as well as some small cams for up high.
