Hanging Chad at the start of the business.

Description 

P1: Climb up past a flake into a hand crack. Pass a short bulge and then place the crux protection in the offwidth above. Climb the offwidth (crux) and gain a nice hand/finger crack. Climb the crack to a ledge on the right and belay.

P2: Continue up the nice finger/hand crack system with some nice exposure to a large ledge. Pass by a tree, go left of it, with nice crack moves. Move up a chimney formed by the wall and a pillar. From the top of the pillar step across to a ledge and make a fun rightwards traverse to a ledge with a large roof above and belay.

P3: Pass the roof using small cams in the roof for protection and continue to the top with easy class 5.

Eds. Note, the above spelling is derived from the guidebook's spelling which is known to differ from the spelling from the movie series.


Location 

Start just right of where the trail meets the wall in a crack with chockstones. The start is just left of where a large horizontal white dike meets the ground.


Protection 

Standard trad rack: small pieces to large hand pieces. Plus 1 #4 Camalot for the crux.

This route can be done as 2 long pitches if you belay from the second large ledge after the exposed finger/hand crack.

There are now rap chains at the top of pitch 1. A single 70m rope easily reaches the ground. A single 60m will come up maybe 15 feet short of the ground--beware!
