Description

Climb the chimney to a finger crack and step up and left into a scoop below a bulge/overlap. Find the best gear you can and pull out and up into the business. Committing moves get you to a good rest. More gear. Then finish up the varied climbing to the top and anchors.

This route would be higher rated for quality if it wasn't for the poor rock quality in the mid section of the route.

Location

Climb the lower flared chimney of Day's Work but instead of breaking right, go straight over a small overlap and up a thin seam.

Protection

Trad gear, anchors at the top.

After you get atop a nice ledge (where you'd think the anchor bolts would be), there's still some more climbing to straight up some easy stuff. Bring a long sling to help reduce rope drag if you want to place a large cam (maybe #4 C4) at the top of that ledge. I did not and made some rube goldberg like extension of nuts, slings, and everything but the nut tool. May 22, 2015
