A two-star rating on this route reflects an experience significantly finer than my own- which involved trying to clean off some footholds to make them usable and also to clean out a few, thin placements so as to have some gear.
The route upon starting was on fine rack, but down low was covered in a dusty lichen- the kind that sends you flying off of a route. It is presently clean enough to climb, but could still use a good brushing to make the climbing more fun and less enervating. After 50' the climbing turns the corner and gets far easier- finishing essentially up and right as if for the left side of the Body Tremors
Wall. The crux is the first 50 feet.
This is the rising seam/crack in the next major left facing corner left and up from Chockstone Chimney
. This is but a few yards to the right of the start as for the 'South Face of Tower 1.'
Belay in the shaded corner behind the tree as for EL 100
, and climb up and left up a bulging, obtuse corner with a placement here and there.
A rack from RPs to 3". This route requires some skill to protect well and is not for pushing your limits on.
