Description

Despite the name, you won't be doing much chimneying on this climb. It goes up a wide, very shallow slot on good rock, giving a full pitch of sustained and varied climbing. This route is in the sun all day. Getting up to the base of the climb requires a few 5.5 moves that many people do unroped.

Protection

standard rack with a good selection of wired nuts

I have twice now bailed off this thing. First because the initial chimney was insecure and second because I ran out of suitable gear 3/4 up. The gear is all there but I swear I could have used triples of .3 to 1 C4. I used a #4 and #5 as well. Everything is flaring and it certainly doesn't inspire confidence in your moves or gear.

Finally sent this, yep, used triples in the small stuff. Pretty classic Suicide stuff ;) May 11, 2015
