Description Suggest change

This route is located on the far right end of Chimney Rock, just right of the steep, bolted Ratline (5.11). Climb the left leaning, large dihedral for two pitches. Cruxy moves, and great protection, are encountered on both pitches. A two bolt anchor at the top of Ratline marks the top of the first pitch. A savvy leader can easily link the first two pitches. This is desirable as the first belay is hanging while the second belay is one of the best on the mountain (and also bolted). The last pitch goes up a short offwidth and steep handcrack. Walk off to the right. If you like this one, make sure you do Cripple Creek on the Pharoah.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack and one 4" piece if you want it for the offwidth on the last pitch
