A nice chimney with fair protection. It gets its name from the fact that you climb a short chimney/flake on the left, then traverse right into the upper half of the more obvious chimney. Rappel off from the top.


This route is on the southwest face of Old Woman. It is the first major crack system to the right of Double Cross.


Gear to 4 inches.

Also, if you plan on knocking out some climbs on the east face, you can scramble easily over to the Toe Jam/bearded cabbage anchors directly across on the opposite side and rap from them. Nov 25, 2009
Tricky move out of the chute at the beginning of the climb... 1st time I've ever used an elbow jam Mar 15, 2011
1970 guide states: "The block halfway up is most easily passed to the left." Jan 3, 2016

Really liked this route - clean, varied movement, easy to protect (YMMV).

I didn't actually find any 4" placements, and even the one 3" I placed (last move to the anchor) seemed optional. Did use doubles of everything smaller, though. Feb 21, 2016
