DescriptionA wild campusing start, then mostly offwidth and chimney to the top. The summit is well worth the grunt. All day shade.
Pitch 1) 10' 5.9 Walk along the limestone ledge until it cliffs out at the base of a big offwidth. Set up a belay and campus across to a ledge at the base of a big chimney.
Pitch 2) 80' 5.9 Go up the chimney. A #6 Camalot is helpful until you have to leave it behind. The chimney above is very runout, but secure. Belay with gear on a nice ledge atop the pillar.
Pitch 3) 80' 5.9+ Up the huecoed offwidth with a bolt to a small ledge, then traverse left to the next crack system. Just before it becomes a chimney there is a hard offwidth move. Save a #5 or #6 Camalot for the top of this pitch. Belay in the chimney from 2 bad bolts.
Pitch 4) 30' 5.8 Face climb up the higher summit (the one in front of you). A little run out.
Descent: 200' from the summit to your packs. One of the bolts is bad, but the other one is good.
