Description 

Climb the mouth of Corvus crack for a good 50 ft chimney climb then transition to face climbing up the east wall. Many variations are possible. Great for use of chimney technique and stemming between two walls.

Location 

Approach from south to set up TR. Shady and cool in Corvus Crack. Many other top rope climb options in Corvus Crack and the face just outside.

Protection 

Top rope from two bolts above on east wall. Also two large boulders can be used with slings. You will definitely need a couple of 20 ft runners off the bolts to keep from frying your rope. See beta photo for top rope set-up.
