Ernie (dad) high up on the route... this shows why...

Description 

A must do route. Cracks, a chimney and some thin face climbing to anchor. Start below and right of the giant blocks and climb past 2 bolts into the chimney. Exit right and pumpy climbing leads past bolts and horizontal cracks to a cresendo finish.
A variation is to climb right before the chimney to a hand crack that rejoins the regular route.

Location 

50 ft right of "The Stack" below a prominent chimney formed by the giant blocks

Protection 

Bolts and standard rack.

I cannot even begin to say how incredible this route is. It has been one of the most spectacular and full value pitches of my life. It definitely clocks in at 5.10++, all I can say really is DO THIS ROUTE.
