Description2 pitches of fun climbing with a memorable squeeze through the roof.
Pitch 1: get up to the Grand Traverse Ledge (we took 1st pitch of Chim Chimney)
Pitch 2: Move right along GTL from the top of Chim Chimney to the base of a big left-facing dihedral. Climb short face to a hand to fist crack in the corner up to a cactus filled alcove.
Pitch 3: Crux moves off the belay lead to easy ground up the corner to an imposing roof. Pass the roof on the right via fun squeeze moves, and continue up crack system to the top. Good pro found in back of roof.
Walk left to swamp slabs descent.
