DescriptionThe crux is definitely the chimney at the beginning. It's hard to find a hold, but they are there. After that it is pretty easy with a little stemming depending on your style and some micro-edging if you want to challenge yourself a bit.
LocationThis route is the chimney right next to the roof that faces west on the main face. See the picture for approximate bolt and anchor positions as well as the route itself.
ProtectionSix bolts to 2 new hanger and ring anchors at the top. The first bolt is pretty scary as you will fall a lot if you're not steady on your feet and stay into the wall. The second is a bit crazy as well, as the wall pushes you away and there are few handholds in the chimney. From there the rest are pretty straightforward.
Please remember to rap down or use a bail-biner as the anchors are new!
