Jane’s Marathon

janes marathon topo2

Every once in a while I find a line that I am really proud of. I also realize that someone else must have looked at what I have but for whatever reason they never came back to climb it. Unaweep Canyon is so full of those great lines that I am constantly amazed at what I find as I peep over cliffs and walk the bases of others.

Jane’s Marathon is one of those great lines that I was able to complete recently on a perfect fall day. Its about 190 feet long and overhangs almost the entire way. There are 10 bolts and I think that I placed about 15 pieces of gear on the way up. What I enjoyed more about the route was the variety of the climbing. The climb is made up of roofs, liebacking, slopers, stemming, odd hand jams and fingers.

So lucky to find this one. Thanks Shawn for the belay and good vibes!
