Approach

Ed's Jamb is located at The Bend area which is 1.4 miles past the junction. Look for the fourth pullout with a shack next to the parking lot. Walk west along along the trail then cross the footbridge. Turn east and hike the trail to the base of the wall. Turn right and go uphill then stop at the cleared area behind the big oak tree near the center (highest part) of the wall.

Ed's Jamb is known for it's classic second pitch which has one of the best 5.8 handcracks anywhere.

Pitch #1 - 5.5 - Scramble up the left angling ramp aiming for the small ledge below the cracks with the tree between them. Now climb up some broken column segments directly to the ledge. 50 feet

Pitch #2 - 5.8 - Jamb the thin handcrack up to just below the tree then traverse to the left into the wider crack. Jamb this excellent handcrack all the way to the anchor at the top of the wall. There are small edges here and there for gear placement rest. A 4 star pitch. 150 feet

Down - 2 60 meter ropes are required to rappel the route from the top anchor. Another option is to rap Pure Joy with a single 60 meter. Another option is to walk off the wall to the east.
