Description 

This straightens out the 2-pitch route Jackson Brown, creating a sustained and interesting one-pitch lead.

Climb the dihedral for 25 feet (crux is first 15 feet), pull over the bulge on angling holds, crank straight (runout 5.10) up to a bolt in a tiny right-facing corner, then up and right on good holds to the top.

It was led ground-up.


Location 

Near the left end of Lower Peanuts, and just before the talus slope, find a radically right-leaning dihedral.


Protection 

Many tiny wires to 3" cam. The gear is okay but difficult and strenuous to place.
