Description Suggest change

This is a fun moderate on the first buttress of Hallett Peak. To find the start, locate Hallett Chimney, AI5 M5 which separates the first and second buttresses. About 40-50 feet left of this chimney, on the right side of the first buttress, locate a huge, right-facing dihedral. The left face of the bottom corner section has a beautiful hand and fist crack arcing up and right into the corner. This crack goes at about 5.6/7 and is sweet.

Rack up below this corner and scramble up and right to a nice ledge to start the climb.

Work up and left to gain the dihedral. Continue up the series of right facing dihedrals and chimneys for 2 to 3 pitches. If you have a 200 foot rope, there are great belay ledges at 195 feet for two pitches and you end up about mid-height on the buttress where you can scramble up to the next section on the face and choose a finish. Scope out your finish before you leave the ground as the lines are difficult to discern once on the wall.
