This line is an obvious crack to chimney climb that just begged to be climbed. It wasn't listed in the Gillett guidebook, so I gave it a name. Dudh Chai, a.k.a. Milk Tea. It is gentle, easy on the stomach, and a good warmup for the stiffer neighbors to its right. The crux felt like it was the start.

You can downclimb to the East to descend and can use a toprope to belay your partner down, since a fall would be ugly.


This is a short right-angling crack located just left or North of the 3 cracks on the West face of Fin City.


A red Alien, a #1 Camalot, a #2.5 Friend-sized cam, and a #3.5 Friend-sized cam are useful. A long sling and a #4 Camalot was nice for the belay.
