BETA PHOTO: Chasing the Lizard


This pitch has it all from hands,fingers,stemming, and offwidth. It deserves to see more traffic. The route starts out in the right hand of two crack systems. Hand jams lead up to the left facing corner. Continue up the corner (fingers) to the stem box above. Continue stemming and grunting up the wide crack and chimney to the shared anchor (2nd pitch of Avenging the Goddess Kring). 2 single 60m raps or one double rap with get you back to the ground.


Start 50' to the left of Rattletale.


Standard rack with gear to 4"-5".

Isn't this Avenging the Goddess Kring?

Really fun route. Gear up to a #4 Camalot. #5 optional. Anchor just above the ledge. The second rap station is in need of replacement. One of the bolts is completely rusted through.

@Mark - I think this variation is Chasing the Lizard. I don't have it with me but I believe that's what it says in Sky Valley Rock. The comment in the pic seems to verify it.

Avenging the Goddess Kring starts in the left hand crack system through two bolts, kinda mossy as of this comment post, and climbs up through the chimney and heads out left past a bolt (10a) to a two bolt anchor at just about 30m. From here one climbs up and left through a right facing corner, can be wet and vinery, past two bolts (5.9) to meet up with the top of Chasin' the Lizard. Both pitches are fun and worth three stars. The climb is rated at 12a in the guide book, but that is only for the last pitch to the top.
