Description

This is a fun, finger crack on the south side of Chair Rock. It is hard to miss. It starts off a ledge about 80 feet off the ground. You can either do one of several options as a first pitch (all 5.8ish), or you can scramble up a short chimney crack thing on the left side of the ledge. Enjoy the sun drenched grassy ledge, and if you get motivated, climb the crack. I always thought it was easier than the given grade.

Also of note are two bolt protected face climbs to either side of the crack. If you do all three climbs, it makes for a fun afternoon.

Location

Rap from summit 120 feet.

Protection

Small cams and stoppers.

Be careful not to plug up the finger locks with cams. Nuts work best at the start! May 11, 2014
I led the thin crack, using some aid from wires, in July 1972. Then we moved right, tunneling through some boulders, to reach the last pitch of what is now called "Destination Unknown." There were no bolts in sight. Jan 3, 2013

I think Deaun is correct. The name since the '70s was Toot Suite, I believe.

Short, just a few moves, but fun. I watched Steve Stubblefield solo it once. Nov 19, 2009
I thought this route was called Toot Suite (as in sweet), but my old memory is not so good anymore. Aug 27, 2008

This route is pretty darn easy if I can lead it! Harder before sticky shoes, I suppose. Gear placement is the crux. Sep 24, 2007
