Italian Jam Shop – 5.12a

30m / 98ft, 17 bolts


Climb 'Banana Mega-Mix' to the sixth bolt and step right. A technical start that keeps you on your toes, leads to pumpy crack (protected by red bolts) and a strenuous overlap before the ledge where you can take a nap, drink some espresso and pull the few final moves on the arete to the top. Skaha at it's best! 16 bolts (30m) FA: John Fantini, 2008.

    By Skaha standards, I would say this is a stout one. It's also one of my favorite ever ever. It's deserving of at least one go! I think it gets overshadowed a bit by Apricot Jam.

    It’s like 3 climbs in one! Crimpy and somewhat long reaches, then a broken crack, then overhanging slopers! Tried at the end of the day a few days ago. First go of the day
