Description

Trough to the left of The Sound of One Shoe Tapping and W.A.C. Easier than Helix (and easier to protect, if you want), this is probably the best bet for climbers who want to hang a toprope on those two 5.8s.

Some scrambling up large flakes and ledges get you into the wide chute for which (I assume) the climb is named. Solid toe jams and stemming will get you up to just below the chain anchors, and a short step across gets you to the top.

Even at 5.2, this is a pretty fun way to spend 5 or 10 minutes.

Protection

Thin to medium pieces will protect the crack at the back of the trough on the upper half of the climb. There is no bolted anchor for this route, but you can choose to continue this climb to a two bolt anchor with rap chains on the neighboring 5.8 climb 15 feet away.
