Description

Crux is the step from the ledge above chimney to the slabs.

Location

Around and left from Wavy Gravy, it's the only chimney. Just climb it, and you'll smile.

Protection

Good gear except for crux.

The topo from Climbing magazine states this goes at about 5.6. I would say the chimney is an easy but fun climb utilizing the big block that forms the right side. The pro is good inside the chimney. The slabby moves to the ledge above are a bit run out and trickier with possible bad fall potential. I would grade it somewhere in between, I guess that means 5.5. Apr 16, 2011
The traditional name for this route is "Dead Babies". You can thank me later... May 5, 2010
