Just got in the chimney, feeling happy, breathing ...

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


I approached this using Klink (10a), which is a pretty fun, but short hand crack. From a large ledge, squirm into the very tight squeeze chimney. Endure the slick, tight, and sustained chimney for about 50 feet, until it opens up to a low-angle corner with a hand crack. As for Pro, I used a 1 # 6 BD at the start of the chimney, from there the pro is sparse (i.e., non-existant) unless you have a #4 & 5 Big Bro I suppose. For me the crux of this route was trying to balance my breathing with security. My chest is around 40", so the more secure the climbing (deeper in the chimney) the more impossible it was to breath.

At the top of the climb traverse climber's right, a good ways and find the rap anchors atop Labyrinth.


20 yards right of Pooh's Corner.


Standard rack of hand-sized cams, couple of finger-sized pieces if approaching via Klink. As for KP; #6 BD and Big Bros. Bring a #3 BD for the belay.

It seems Klink isn't yet listed, eh? Too bad, it's a good climb.
