DescriptionA short (15 foot) squeeze chimney leads to a large ledge. Continue up a narrow dihedral and a hand crack to another ledge. Follow face holds and a hand crack up to the chimney proper. Climb the chimney to a significant ledge. From here, climb right into a small chimney, then traverse up and left towards the break in an overhand. Climb up between the overhand and the cliff wall at it's smallest point to another ledge. Then climb up easy slabs to the top.
LocationWalk along the ledge at the base of the sandstone buttress until it is possible to see a prominent chimney. If you are wondering if it is a chimney, you haven't seen it yet.
ProtectionThere is one bolt on the first ledge. Two bolt belay on the second ledge. Two bolts in the second chimney. Two bolt belay on the third ledge. One bolt in the third chimney. Two bolt belay on the fourth ledge. There is a two bolt belay at the top. This climb is bolted to death, and there are plenty of options for placing traditional protection. You could rapel this route with a 30m rope.
