Description 

The Meatlocker is located in the center of the Frontier Wall, bracketed by the Snake Bite and the Forbidden Zone. It starts in a deep alcove which turns into hand/finger crack over a roof.

This one is a true JT "full value pitch". All the tricks come out; full stems, edge cranking, hand and finger jamming, and of course, the love of grain.

Burly moves off the ground to stem your way out of the meatlocker and into the roof. More cranking is required to pull the roof to a good stance. Continue through good fingers to a small stance before some poor rock. Excellent gear can be found just below this section, but moving through rates a PG. Continue through another roof with spectacular position and solid holds. Easy climbing continues to the top.

Protection 

Full standard rack. Descend to the rear, traversing between the Frontier Spires and the back of Frontier wall.
