Chris Parks past the difficulties on 'The Flare' o...

Description 

A reasonably fun & sunny warm up on a freezing day.

On the S. Face of the Willit Pillar there is a huge chimney system. Climbing up the face ont eh right side of this can be done to avoid the rather ill-protected and crunbling beginnign of said feature. It also avoids a rather pungent mess of wet bird crap if it's been recently raining...Climb up this and into a right-facing and right-leaning crack system onto a ledge. Belay here or continue (rope drag) up and right to a face with a few heads up moves by some to reach the summit.

5.4? Uh... sure felt harder to me.


Protection 

Some advanced skill with pro is required, in all probablility it will seem 's' to a 5.4 leader.As well, I think the rotue is a little sandbagged, as reflected in the 5.6 grade I am giving it here.
