Description 

This is the obvious chimmney left of Whiskey A Go-Go. Climb up on good face holds (Gear?) to reach the cleft. There are good holds inside and out on the left towards the top of this section. After that's over, work up two cracks to the anchors of Whiskey A Go-Go. This is a really cool pitch for the grade and the rock quality is good throughout.


Location 

Left of Whiskey, Y-wall.


Protection 

Wires, Single set of cams. Long draws or short runners for chimmney.

The chimney feels like it's going to spit you out each time you move up. Just a bit flaring. But a great climb! And the dihedral after the chimney is picture perfect!
