This climb is in the back passage of the first chimney to the right of the In and Out / Big Boy alcove... It climbs the narrow inside passage that negotiates the depths behind Gynogroove.

From the ground, climb easy terrain up to the Gynogroove chimney, then walk back into the cleft until it widens. Climb up through the chimney until forced to squeeze horizontally into an interior room.

This route is definitely not recommended for portly climbers.


Located in the very back of the first crack/chimney to the right of Big Boy. Descend through blocky jumbles on the back side of the formation.


A few medium size cams are useful, but the route is mainly protected by pieces in the 6" through 12" range. Headlamps are helpful for both the leader and second.
