South Face, Jello Tower
|1,175 page views|
This is the steep face left of the Midway chimney. Climb steep terrain to a bulge midway up the face. After pulling through the bulge, the difficulties ease. The climbing and the gear are both better than they look from the ground. Belay from bolts on top of Jello Tower (shared by all Jello Tower routes). Consistently fun and interesting 5.8+ moves the whole way.
Gear to 2".

This climb was harder than I thought it would be and definitley gets an 8+ or a 9 rating (maybe). It is very exposed and steep through the first crack section but you can put some gear in below the bulge. There is a bolt above the bulge but to pull through it was somewhat difficult. After that it's pretty straightforward to the chains.

A new anchor has been placed on top of The Nose and The South Face of Jello Tower.
This makes it easier to repelle off Jello Tower when other groups are on Midway.

This is one of the best 5.8's in Leavenworth! Most leaders who can only lead 5.8 or 5.9 will find it difficult. Since it's steep, it's a safe lead, though.
