Description 

The pretty splitter up high on the south face of the Mav, but you have to brave the awkward sandy start. A steep #2 friend section leads into a very weird move where you kind of dive into the chimney and start wriggling. After doing this move, the old Astroman topo which advises a "chicken-wing dyno" entry into the Harding Slot makes a bit more sense. Once in the chimney, easy climbing sets you up to exit onto the upper face and the ringlock and thin-hand madness. Don't stop...


Location 

The first route left of Gunsmoke which makes it the furthest right route on the south face of the mav.


Protection 

Double set to #3 camalot with extra #.75 camalots and #2 friends.

Good route description. I did this route yesterday and didn't place anything bigger than a #1 Camalot and once over the roof, only .75 Camalots. It is possible to get down with one 60m rope.

There's an amazing account of the FA of this thing over on Supertopo.com . The thread is called "Any Jimmy Dunn stories?" and the account is by Bob Palais, comment #61 on June 21. Pretty cryptic reason for the name of the climb.
