Shayne (aka Travis Pastrami) on the Jam Crack. 2-2...


This is the obvious low angled crack to the left of smooth sole. A great introduction to first time climbers.


Bring gear to three inches

Great intro to crack and trad climb, fun and easy! Sucks up two #2and two #3, set of stoppers and .5-1 for anchor options.

Worth placing some pro low down in the narrow cracks because you're actually climbing above a hole that's below the belayer. I was able to place some large hexes, but would have rather had more cams.
