Great route, highly recommended!
Protecting the start is a good idea as the traverse is a little thin and a fall here would be nasty. I placed a cam before stepping off the big block, then back-cleaned it after getting a piece in the initial crack over to the left.

|Having been up this a few times now, I find it's more fun to continue straight up instead of following the chimney up and right. It's a bit more pumpy and getting underway is a little more intimidating (start through a bit of a bulgy overhang) but it's more fun than crouch-walking up the chimney/thing. Dodge left into easy terrain if you get pumped out or maximize your vertical gain by going straight up the whole way. Regardless, it really is a nice route.|
