Jake Hadden just getting into the chimney near the...


A testy moderate with a special aura due to its proximity to the dark, gaping chimney immediately to its right.

Start about 5 feet to the left of the chimney, and follow the finger/handcrack until it is possible to begin stemming off the right arete of the chimney. Fun and delicate opposition moves lead you to the top of the pedestal.


On the right side of the cliff, on the face of the right facing corner/chimney. It is roughly 150 feet downhill and right of the start of Quadrophenia.


A standard rack with a couple extra finger/hand-sized pieces.

The chimney to the right is a 5.7 variation with a #4 cam and worth trying. G protection.
