BETA PHOTO: Route in red up the Donkey Ear. Keep in the crack ...

Since 2011, the Access Fund Conservation Team has completed 114 stewardship projects, constructed over 35,000' of trail, built 106 rock staircases, & trained 3,000+ volunteers. Join or give and MP will match!

Description 

This is an awesome single pitch of easy climbing on great rock that puts you on top of one of the best perches of all time! Staying directly in the crack might make it 5.7 climbing, but it's pretty easy even at that. You can make it 5.5 or less if you go the weakest way.

Location 

Once you can see the chimneys, head for the third one. The second chimney is split in two, not that one, but the one after that. Climb the south side of it. It's got a low angle. You can see the anchors.

Protection 

Great cracks all the way up. bomber webbing anchor with rap rings on the top. You can lower with a 60m. Probably even a 50m.
