In The Updrafts!

Description 

A bolted chimney climb! This is such a cool and odd bird. You can choose to climb just the face, or chimney with your back to the wall and your feet facing the bolts. Up you go!


Location 

in chimney east of the notch. Can be approached from either side.


Protection 

4 bolts

Fun climb, but the anchors are in very poor condition. The rock around the left bolt is fractured and the left bolt moves A LOT. It can be pulled out by hand! The right bolt is on its way as well. Consider down climbing this route or using another anchor. Could someone please pass the word to whoever maintains the crag?

Excellent beginner lead - very secure with your back against the right-hand wall! Presently three clips, which seemed fine.
