Solid 5.12 on dead vertical to very slightly overhanging rock = long powerful moves between small holds.
Not sure whether the arete left of the bolt line towards the top is on or not.
In corridor on north side of Chimney Rock, access by hiking around to climber's left of George's Buttress.
Look for face with bright green lichen just around the corner from the West face.

Hey Christian, this route was actually put up by Mike Cook. The initials should have been MCo but I blew it. Jimbo said and you confirmed it, the route is contrived. If you have to ask if it is on then it is contrived. Outside if you are not bouldering there is no on or off. Like the new one at Jailhouse, if you can reach it you can use it. How hard would it be if you didn't contrive it?

Cool, FA info fixed.
The arete at the top definitely made it easier, have no idea how hard overall it would be going straight up??? 12 c/d? Just stoked to actually get to top without having to bail.
"Tomorrow is Today" actually looked better but the start was looking a little sketchy to me after expending some energy finally leading SLR :-)

A crystal blew off on me today while I was on this... it now looks like it would be even harder to go straight up and avoid the arete.

Was there when Mike finally got it clean. Definitely goes straight up and not on the arete. Fun route. Miss you bud.
