Description

Begin on top of the water pipe at the mouth of the tunnel and climb the steep and thin flake on the R side. Climb up to a roof and stay L up the great face. This is a nice face climb and also number 3 in the picture.

Protection

RPs, stoppers, small cams, w/ some fixed gear. The serious fall potential is on the face (9+ s).

Pretty bouldery and stiff start to this one if you opt to tackle the face directly, without stemming. Getting off the ground and into the route was the crux for me, and then some great 10 moves followed until getting up on the slab. The R section comes about half way up the route and involved some balancey 5.9 moves. I followed this one, so I can't vouch for how scary a lead it was, but it didn't seem too bad. Oct 22, 2010

A neat route, with long legs you can avoid the 10c crux with some serious back stemming in the chimney. The face up above is spooky and committing, but way cool. Expect some lichen and not much chalk to guide the way. Sep 21, 2007
