Missing the Obvious
|55 page views|
This climb was named after it's history. It was handed over for a try by a would-be F.A. party who could not figure out how to get started on it. After I did it, this resulted in much forehead slapping- the obvious had been missed.
Start up into the crack and get stemmed into a chimney and then pull right and up onto a horizontal gap in the rock. On the FA a vertical tube-chock protected this section, as there were no huge cams or big pros available. Move right out of the horizontal slot and up into another chimney to the top. A good line with some grunting.
On the far right side of Willie's Wall- a chimney system divided by a horizontal gap past mid-way.
A rack with some big-bros and some long slings.
