Description

This route climbs the obvious steep flared chimney with the handcrack in the back. Start by scrambling up to the base of the crack below the chimney, then lieback it to a rest at the base of the chimney. Now jam the perfect splitter handcrack for 40 feet, then scramble up to the bolt anchor.

This route doesn't see a lot of traffic, but is very good.

Location

Hike the Inner Wall trail up towards Toxic Shock. Just after the cave look for a faint trail heading up the gully to the right towards the right end of the Missing Bottle Buttress. Scramble along the edge until you encounter the first ledge with the moss scraped off. Traverse across to the left here then up to reach the base.

Protection

1 set of cams to a #3 camalot
an extra #2 is nice
60 meter rope
