Climb the hand crack up the right side of the Chew tooth.The crack bends a little after the first 8 feet, and this isthe crux. Top out onto the first ledge, and then continueto the top using one bolt and a reacy move to mantle over.


Bring one bolt and several medium-sized Friends for the crack. Top anchoring can use from interesting slinging from the top anchors on the rock, or good use of the tree that sits behind the top of this route.


Pretty short! Sep 12, 2006

Fun, short stemming route. Good warmup if you do it a couple of times. Aug 3, 2009
A bit awkward as a top rope route - the bolts are pretty far to the left, closer to the other climbs. This makes the traverse at the end very swimgy if you fall. Jun 3, 2017
