Climb the corner to reach a short section of chimney. Grunt through the wide section to reach a nice hand crack. Follow crack until you reach a roof. At this point, follow a left leaning hand crack for 15 ft and then straight up to the finish. The diagonal crack is outstanding! Don't be turned off by the chimney section, it's not that bad and the gear is good.


Start about 15-20 ft. to the left of the start of Chasin' the wind(standard start) below a small section of chimney.


Mostly larger gear. A #4 camalot is helpful for the chimney section. Several hands to wide-hands size pieces are helpful for the rest.

This is a phenomenal line that has four distinct phases: corner to roof traverse; chimney, money hand jams, top-out-traverse. The view from atop is amazing.

I felt like a fatty with my gear squeezing through the chimney (Mama's Squeeze Box is a good warm-up) and seemed like the crux.

Decided to walk over to the M. Squeeze Box anchors b/c the smallish tree that serves as the rap station was a bit too wobbly for me. Friends rapped the next day and thought it was fine. May 30, 2016
