Description

From the southeast face alcove of Parachute, this is the farthest rout to the climber's right. Move up the slab in the alcove to the first crack on the right. It is a short 5.10a move out of the alcove and on to the main southeast face. Gain the hand and finger crack above the 5.10a exit of the alcove, it goes up parallel to the crack for True Religon, which is the climb that exits the back right corner of the alcove. Traverse left past the corner for the main south face after reaching the top of the crack on Rip Cord for the pitch to the top of Parachute.

I thought this was the best of the alcove routes. Very nice and sustained thin hands. Aug 13, 2007

The crux, IMO, lasts a little longer than the first moves out of the alcove. Fun route. Jun 10, 2004
