DescriptionThis is an OK beginner's route up the Southeast face of Greyrock. Follow the main trail looking for the obvious chimney. If the trail touches the main rock, you have gone too far.
P1: Wander up easy low angle cracks to the base of the "chimney" pitch.
P2: This is the best pitch on the climb. Climb the 2-3 foot chimney for ~75 feet with very little pro. Surmount the headwall with a 3-4 foot chimney and belay.
P3-4: Another pitch or two of easy cracks will lead you to the top of Greyrock.
Descent: Follow the hiking trail to the base of the climb. It is best to scout out the hiking trail before doing the climb, if this is your first time at Greyrock.
