BETA PHOTO: Jugular - The Hidden Wall
A steep, mostly juggy route with a hidden pocket.
The start is fairly intimidating because the landing in case of a fall before the first bolt isn't great. However, the holds are there, so fear not...
After clipping the first bolt and breathing easier, start up a slightly-overhanging section that will cause you to wonder how in the world this can be 5.8. You'll wonder, that is, until you figure things out and then you'll just think it's a huge pile-o'-fun.
Continue through a less-steep section, and then find your way through the ever-steepening bit to the anchors.
6 bolts, ring anchors.
When first approaching the wall, there are three bolted lines visible to the left of a small tree. This line is the right-most of the three lines.
Right at the base is a sawn-off stump.
Nearing the top of Jugular.

Moving pass the first clip, don't fall you'll land...

fun route for a warm up before getting on the .9 or the two 10's to the left. Good jugs and pockets, just gotta look for them.

Drop the packs here for your warm-up! One tricky part near the start then cruse!

Very interesting route for the grade. Super fun. If the thing was 45 degrees overhung it would be an absolute classic.

Fun route, seems to go from jug to slope to jug, making for interesting climbing and sometimes unexpected moments. The holds are there, but they can be tricky to find. Overall, a lot of fun.

I thought the holds were pretty obvious except for the single kind of tricky part at the bottom.

Huge holds, lots of fun. I remember one hold was quite a stretch for me, I think it was between the second and third bolt.
