topo for jockey cap
« on: July 16, 2003, 07:41:33 pm »
Does anyone know where I could find a topo of Jockey Cap?  If there isn't one in print or on the web perhaps someone could post one???

If you want to get to the peak, you ought to climb without giving it too much thought.

you used to be able to get one from IME that was a supplement to Handren's guidebook. I'll see if I can hunt something up.

I know the routes for the steepest section on the right hand side if you are looking at the cliff. There are quite a few new routes that went in this spring. A bunch of new bolts on the cliff were placed this spring from various people ranging from Fryeburg Academy students, to a local logger, and Bob Parrott placed a bunch in the cave section. So the old topo is out of date to a degree. There are also new route on the left face as well and one one the right hand side. I don't know their names.

Anyhow, for the cave section:
From Left to Right looking at the face.

Makos Roof (5.12b)**(starts at natural thread with black ployster static cord, then trend left.
The Puffer Fish (5.13a/b?)*** natural thread then straight up through the roof.
Great White (5.12a/b)** 10 feet right of the thread. Start up a right trending flake to a bolt with red sling, quick link, then head striaght up.
The Sycamore (5.13b/c?)*lowest bolts on cliff. Beware of hitting ground from crux dyno.
Open Project (link the first three bolts sycamore into project on right,5.13+?)
Open Project (Start as for hammer trend left into roof feature with pinches)
Hammer Head*(5.12a) Purple sling on last bolt
Beluga (5.10)*Trends right on pockets, ledges.

I hope this helps
