Jugular Vein 5.7, Sunset Park, TN


Work your way up and left across the face to vertical crack system, past a pine tree, over flakes, pulling a small overhang and up to the anchors


Just left of Blonde Ambition and Second Sun.


A selection of nuts and cams will probably cover you. Long slings.

I think this is almost as good as Blonde Ambition. The crack section looked like it would take big gear, but it's mostly small to medium stuff. Fun lead, but not a casual 5.7 so probably not a good choice for a new leader.

The climbing was varied and interesting. Face, nice crack, and a small roof to finish. The gear is good for sure but could be a little strenuous to place for the new 5.7 leader. Just as fun as Blonde Ambition for sure. Starting with the flakes under Second Sun and then traversing back left a few feet was a decent alternative to the facy start.
