Description

Climb up the chimney and gain a large ledge. Move left past a bush and gain a good finger crack system in a corner. Move up past a few hard moves where the crack seams out a bit, and the continue a ledge. Finish with some easier chimney to the top, no fixed anchor.

A good 5.9 variation starts to the left in a vertical hand crack.

Location

Located just left of the alcove where Mint Jam, No Name, and Welcoming party sart in a a flared chimney with a finger crack system on the left wall.

Protection

Nuts and cams: small through wide hands.

A great climb, I found the crux to be in the middle with one awkward move. I didn't find any bolted anchors. Mar 19, 2012
