Description Suggest change

If you're a southern tradster looking to expand your horizons west of the Mississippi, you'll need to punch the clock on a few of these before you roll to the Valley.

A classic flare, with a special T-Wall touch--it's bottomless-- provides a workout you won't soon forget. Lucky for you, there's hands --tight ones-- in the back. Skip the tape and they'll go in further, but poor technique will cost you in skin. When the flare peters out into a band of choss, move right to the arete and run for the trees, or tough it out up the seam straight up for added value.

Location Suggest change

The flared, hanging chimney staring you in the face as you walk past Passages, etc.

Protection Suggest change

Green camalots work well in the flare. If your chalk bag extends to your elbow or you remember who Mork was, call 'em '2's.
