[Hide Comment] A tremendous route to practice unprotected runout chimney climbing. So secure in a wide chimney you don't need protection, great practice for more committing chimneys. May 9, 2010

[Hide Comment] There are actually two bolts on the upper face that lead to a two-bolt rap anchor. The bolts are fine, but the anchor is a bit old/rusty and should be replaced at some point. The quality of the rock on this route is excellent. Feb 12, 2017
