For a second pitch of Duchess the obvious choice is the right chimney. Another option is the crack one over to the left: It starts as a wide pod, then narrows down to fist size. Getting out of the pod onto the next small ledge is the crux.


3" or 4" for the wide part?

Some guidebooks show this as a continuation of the moderate Duchess routes below. It is indeed 5.10!
