This is the chimney behind 'Slice and Dice'. It protects (!) with TCU's in a finger crack, so it seems like a good way to get to know this kind of climbing without the typical runouts found in most such fissures. I haven't tried it straight in (w/o using the back wall), but this would be a whole lot harder.
Further up this corridor one encounters a wavy, podded R-facing flake which we climbed for 100' or so. This has recently sprouted a lower set of anchors (right where it gets wide, funny) and a plaque: "Renegades of Funk, 5.10". Owing to the wing-like look of the feature, we had considered "Bernoulli Effect" as a name, but it was getting late to be sitting around carving on rocks.
Finger stuff to .75 Camalot. 2-pin anchor. Plaque.

I climbed Renegades this past weekend and thought the anchors were in a strangely chosen spot. Too bad they aren't higher.

Go ahead and climb up to the old hex or whatever it was and take care of it. Thanks!

i thought this was a really fun little route - definitely worth doing. as mentioned above, good intro to this type of climbing without the usual runouts. not too often that you get to plug a bunch of tiny cams into a 5.8 in the desert.
