Agony is the appealing crack line sandwiched between Triple S and Crack of Dawn. Commonly done in two pitches but best as a single rope-stretcher. Climb the face up to the crack, follow this through the overhand and into the chimney. Belay here or follow the easier chimney to the top.


Standard rack.

Once you've done the original line try 'Agony till Dawn" this variation allows you to slide left just after the chockstone and right before the chimney climbing--you're just past the crux of Crack of dawn--follow the beautiful hand and finger cracks to shuts. Feb 17, 2013

Really fun climb. This pitch has a little bit of everything.

My 70 meter rope got me down to the ledge about 6 feet up on Triple S. Be careful, because it's close. Apr 23, 2014

belaying at the chockstone before the chimney is awkward and uncomfortable, and hard for the 2nd to get past to lead the top. highly recommend doing it in a single pitch instead. great climb. Apr 20, 2015
