Description

This wide crack in a left-facing dihedral is about 70 feet to the right of Touch And Go. Hand and fist jamming take you up to where the crack goes offwidth. Jam or lieback past here up to a chimney. Enter the chimney (crux). At the top of the chimney, a stomach traverse leads 15 feet right to an easy exit.

Protection

several hand and fist size pieces, plus at least one each 4 and 5 inch piece for the offwidth

Full value, sweet finish.

Worth doing after neglecting your big cams on Touch and Go. I had "fun" jamming and thrashing through the wide section, but my off-width-fearing partner certainly had an easier and quieter time with the lieback ascent...

Watch out for a loose chockstone near the top.

Also, our rope got sucked into a crack as my partner came up - before the final traverse, it would be worth it to put something in that crack, or a directional somewhere else. Jan 21, 2014
