Andrew half way up making the second traverse.

Description 

This climb follows the first crack system to the right of the prominent Captain Hook chimney. The climbing is hand jams and crux finger jams. The easiest descent is to walk right to a tree and rappel 160' to the ground.

Pass time is an excellent crack climb. Start at Capt hook as you climb into the chimney traverse right onto hand crack continue up. At top of crack( groove) Traverse right again onto another crack. Continue up 8 feet and traverse right yet again into another crack that will become a finger crack climb to top rap station at top of climb.

I see this route is rated just one star however, this turned out to be VERY fun. A good time was had by all...

As David said, Vogel's topo is slightly off at the start. Climb the first 15 feet of Capt Hook and then step right.
The rap at the top is 95 feet, not 130.
Good route!

I can't believe it was rated 5.8 in the old guide books it's a pretty stout nine the crux in insecure more so then the flower

I think this climb is better than the other moderates, Sword of Damocles, Capt. Hook and Frustration, on the Butress. A tricky start gives way to interesting and varied crack climbing...

pick a hot, mid summer, monsoonal moisture day if you want to turn this into a surprisingly hard climb!
