Description

This was a great route.It goes up the wide crack to the right of gobblers grunt. Starts off narrow, then gets wide, then necks down to a hand crack. We set up a belay where the crack narrowed down to hand size. From here the climb shoots left via an exposed face into another chimney. Take this chimney up to the top in 2 more pitches. The crux pitch is the first one. It is possible to bail after the first pitch because that is on the same ledge where the 1st pitch of gobblers grunt ends. The chimneying towards the top offered some spectular moves and only a minor amount of birdcrap.

Bring up to a #5 Camalot.

This is a quality route. The first pitch offwidth is tough for 5.8. It's a weird width that doesn't succumb to some of the basic OW techniques and the wall you have to work with is steep without many features. I was happy to have a #6 Camalot. The P2-P3 chimney is very nice with some fun climbing. Oct 2, 2018
