Moderate mixed chimeny/slot climbing at its best! The crux is typically committing to grovelling over the large chockstone 1/3 up but it varies based on the line taken further up and conditions. Belay either from the modest sized aspens at the top or go up to large rock outcrop up and left and try and frigg an anchor.


The 2nd tier of the chain station. Climb any line at the main chain station then go up and left (more left than up really) for a honest 300-400 yards or more. You will pass some short stuff that may or may not be worth doing before rounding a corner and seeing the beautiful pillar that is Sometimes A Great Notion. Just left of this is a chimney/slot with some ice in it. This is Penny Slot. Recommend rapping from chain anchor at top of Sometimes, but you can walk off to East (long). Some folks snowshoe the approach which is often a good idea.


Full rack to include pins and a few screws.
