Right and around the corner of the Y crack is this obvious chimney. It is often done as a solo, but can be set-up as a TR as bolts/rings are at the top. The crux involves grabbing a horn and stepping out for an exposed move to gain the top. Fun


A few nuts, with bolts for anchor/rap

A fun solo or easy lead. Beware the guano.
