Apricot Jam (5.12b) – Skaha

Apricot Jam is surely the absolute best 5.12b in Skaha if you like long, enduro routes with a huge variety of climbing; start with a challenging bolted crack, then a no-hands rest, then a much more challenging crack, then another no-hands rest, then a massive roof with big moves to jugs, then an enduro burn up a more-difficult-than-it-seems headwall .. and finally a 5.12b crux move! There’s a third no-hands rest just under the roof if you jam your head in there .. but it hurts. Holy shit, this climb delivers! Find it on Blipvert Tower, across from Doctors Wall. Continuing leftward on the second crack until you can traverse right underneath the roof makes it a little easier in my opinion. It is definitely a stout 5.12b unless you have mad endurance …
