This quality route takes the obvious chimney between Left Hand and Question of Balance. Two ways to finish: one belay on the ledge about 65-70 feet up and do the second pitch or two; traverse said ledge to chains above Question of Balance.


Small to medium pro.

A good route. Definitely bring some bigger cams (up to #3 Camalot) for the chimney section.

If you go to the top, there is an anchor on the right with which you can reach the ground with a single 60m rope.

The 2nd pitch of Air Conditioner is a full value not to be missed Taylor Canyon crack classic. Also there is a 3rd pitch up and around to the left. It is a wide crack through a roof called Aqua Dog 5.9. This is a great way to finish up any of the Baby Face routes.

Ahhh Aqua Dog, I'd forgotten about that one Phil....slippery! Did you do that with Jimmy this last weekend? Hope you said Hi to him for me.
