Description

This route has more mistakes, bailing and lost climbers than any other route at the NJ Gap. Pay attention and follow the route line. Don't be deceived by its rating. Many variations have been done around the solid line.

Pitch 1: Climb weaknesses up the center of the face. After a minor chimney, step right to a belay.
Pitch 2: Climb up almost to the large chimney (Cryptic Chimney) where an optional belay provides an opportunity for photos. Then traverse straight out left with a small ceiling below. At the end of the upper ceiling, climb up to a cedar tree, where there are usually slings for a double-rope rappel.

Location

Very easy to see, mid-wall and look for the small chimney.

Protection

Pro is VERY good on this route, nice small chimney about 60' up, protect with a #8-#10 nut before climbing.
