Description

A tough little devil that will knock you around a bit if you are new to OW but it protects well with large cams... Basically hop up in there and an heel-toe, grunt, knee-jam, chicken wing and maybe bleed to the top... Or if you are an off-width ace use this as a fun warm up...

Location

From where the trail gets to the cliff walk right a short way till you see this squeeze chimney/OW under a roof with a hard finger crack a few feet to its right...

Protection

i used a #6 and two #4.5 camalots... that worked well... bolted anchor at the top...

Damn! I was going to add this one.

As for gear, I'd recommend 2 #6s, if you have them, and a .75 for the pod before the crux. If you don't have 2 #6s, a 5 works pretty well if you place it deep. Mar 23, 2009

Felt similar to a 10b OW I did at Indian Creek (UT), but then again I’m not an OW climber. Doable with 2 BD #5s & 2 #6s. 7 days ago
