This route describes the ridge traverse between the summits of Jacks and Dicks Peak and supposes that you are starting on the summit of Dicks Peak. See the fine Dicks Peak page
for how to get yourself atop that peak. If you're starting on top of Jacks, reverse the route.
This is a fun but pretty easy ridge scramble with great views. It is class 2 almost the entire way, with one more difficult section on Jacks' north ridge just above the notch between the two peaks. This is easy class 3 and there are many ways to scramble around any difficult spots. See the photos below for detail.
Descend south from Dicks Peak to the notch. Easy Class 2. Climb up from the notch up the north ridge of Jacks Peak. A tricky section is encountered about 1/4 way up the ridge. Above that, the main difficulties are avoiding the persistent shrubs along the ridge. Enjoy the fine views of the Crystal Range from the summit of Jacks.
nuttin' but a good pair of sneakers.
