BETA PHOTO: Looking up at the fist pitch.

Description 

P1: Climb the slightly overhanging off-width to a block good gear solid stacks and a knee-bar. Pull the lip belay on a big ledge. P2: Walk ten feet behind a boulder into a side leaning chimney. Chimney up 10ft to a ledge belay off the ledge. Thin and fun slab climbing up to a belay stance with a nice horn to sling.

Location 

Hike all the way up to the top of the Sport Wall gully. Go past a the old power plant debris looking for a series of large chimneys at the top of the hill. The route starts out on the right side of the largest gully on the wall.

Protection 

P1: Gear to a #5 and doubles of #3s would be nice.
P2: The smallest nuts and cams you have. Brassies or micro-stoppers would help.
