Looking up at the chimney section.


This route starts as a semi-wide crack at the bottom which can be bypassed on the ledges to your right where you then would work back left after manteling into the wide ledge where the crack is near hands width. Continue straight up from that point until you get into the bottom of the chimmney (I found that the crack on the left wall presumably the Gobbler's Cobbler was useful at times). From here, head mostly straight up until you can get some gear in the cracks above near the bush (you could cheat yourself from here and just walk up and pass 1 chock stone, but why?). I kept chimneying until I had to pass under the last large chockstone into the big room above. I think it would be cool to stay on the outside of the last large chockstone.


This is in the alcove to the right of Steppenwolf, left crack/chimney. (Not Gobbler's Cobbler or Gator's Skin as I have also heard it called. It's just right of that route.)


We didn't really use anything bigger than a #3-3.5. Some small gear was used like a red sliding nut, and black Alien.
