Description

Climb a short crack into the chimney and find somewhat tricky, small gear in the thin crack on the left to protect a series of fun moves to the anchor.

Location

This is in the chimney on the far right side of the East Quarry.

Protection

Think thin, small Aliens, small offset Aliens, steel wires, Ballnuts, etc. up to finger-sized. You might want something as large as a #4 Friend to protect the start. Fixed ring anchors at the finish.

Like many of the easier climbs in the Quarry and East Quarry, a sandbag at the grade of 5.7. If one goes INTO the squeeze chimney to place gear as I did, it is a slithery affair, and should be renamed Watersnake or Eel 5.9. However, one can get thin gear in the crack to the left, and stem back to the back wall of the chimney but never get into it. 5.8. Also, a #3 Camalot is helpful to protect the moves off the ground.

We were walking the base scoping the routes as the sun was setting. We saw this and though it looked really fun and thought we could solo it in our regular shoes. I started my way up and was soon at the chimney after a couple OW ish moves that would have sucked to reverse.
Once in the chimney, it's pretty much smooth sailing even with out climbing shoes, it's all about the technique. Super fun movement and a pretty nice line in general. Dec 19, 2009

A tricky lead for the grade, but a really fun route. You need to use your entire body to get up this line. Dec 12, 2010

This is a really fun line and with good stemming technique is no harder than 5.7. There is no reason to go into the chimney. Jan 7, 2011
