Begin 100 feet right (downhill) of 'Rads For Rookies' beneath an imposing, flared chimney. Meander through 40 feet of poor quality choss, placing gear in unconsolidated, crumbly rock. Be careful not to dislodge the death-block as you pull crux moves into the flared chimney. Avoid the temptation to place protection behind this block as this will make the climb R-rated for your belayer. Squirm, grind, and stem up the surprisingly fun but largely unprotectable chimney for 40 feet to an enormous ledge.
Descend an easy ramp system to the right.
Standard rack to 2 inches.
