Description

This route is located in the back of the corridor above Railroad Tracks. Top out on Railroad Tracks and walk to the back of the chimney, the crack/flake on the right is the route. In the warmer months, this is a fun alternative to the heat. THIS IS A LONG PITCH AND REQUIRES TWO ROPES TO GET OFF! I was unpleasantly surprised when the length in the Indian Creek guide was wrong. No one should have to hike back down to the truck in the summer heat only to hike back up and then jug all the way back up to the top because of a little type error.
The climbing is fun chimneying to start until about Twenty-five feet up when the chimney widens and you have to transfer to just the crack. From there, a couple of wide sections and twenty to thirty more feet of solid, slightly overhanging 5.10 tight hands and hands to the top. Oh, and the top move is a little spicy.

Protection

Bring one of everything from .5 to #4 Camalots and three or four of .75 to #2 or #3. Watch for sap in the top of the route and again, bring two ropes.
