This big beauty lies just to the right of the Climb and Punishment alcove and splits the entire SW face of Reynolds Hill.
P1- Begin in a large R-facing recess and climb through some cracks and fins for about 40 feet. A bail sling here offers your last option for retreat. Fight and squirm through the bulging slot (5.9) until the angle eases. Run it out for about 50 ft. of 5.8 chimney. A cool exit move through a handcrack in a headwall deposits you on a shelf to belay (140 ft.) This classic pitch defines 5.9 wide climbing at the Woo!
P2- A short and easy 50 ft. pitch takes you to the top.
A convoluted walk off/ down climb takes you to the rear of the formation then contours back around to the front.
Pro- Rack up to a #6 Friend with doubles in the #2-#4 sizes. A #4-#5 Big Bro and knee pads could be useful in the runout chimney.
