Description 

Start on the second crack about 20 feet left of Jacob's ladder. Go up the crack through the first overhang to the second overhang (crux) until you reach the big ledge 25 feet up. Continue on the face to the left of the ledge. Finish on small holds to the upper left of the face.


Location 

Look at the Bone. Directly to the left of that is Jacob's Ladder. Then a crack (Pork Loin 5.7), and then the next crack is Pork Loin 5.8 variation. You have to step up a small ledge about 5 feet high to begin the climb. There are many trees in the way at the bottom when looking up.


Protection 

Normal rack. You will need a lot of webbing or static line when toproping this route. The anchor points on top are far from the ledge.
