Climb the short crack to a ledge. Follow the right-facing chimney (crux) to a corner that ends at a roof. Around the roof on the right and belay at a good ledge with a good rap anchor. 80 feet, 5.8-


Just right of the huge corner of Simple Suff; or, when the approach trail meets the Slime Wall, walk left about 250 feet to where the trail drops down sharply. The crack starts on a small ledge about 8-10 feet up; the chimney is obvious.

We both ended up doing a fair amount of face climbing to the right of the chimney, where it was bombay.

Fun enough route - watch for loose stuff.

This is a nicer climb than it promises from the ground. It's relatively casual 5.8. We rapped after the first pitch.
