  • Description 

    Classic Bolton crack climbing! P1 is a grovelly short offwidth. Bring very large cams or big bros, or sack up and run it out. good arm bars but hard to move up and somewhat dirty. Grovel through brush to a hemlock tree. Belay. P2 - Climb the sweet chimney (5.7) good gear in the chimney to the high point of upper west.


    The upper chimney is visible from Duck Brook circle. The bottom offwidth is located immediately right of stone staircase downhill about 200' left of the Rose.

    Wow this thing is a crazy adventure! Very wide gear needed for first pitch a 6 protects crux but it's bigger up top. Second pitch is the wildest squeeze chimney I've ever done make sure your partner and you can both fit in this slot canyon. The whole thing can be climbed with one #6 if you like squeeze chimneys...

    There is a 5.6 variation that stays out of the chimney and climbs up on the face around it thats not bad.
