Description [Suggest Change]

This was originally climbed in the 1970s by who IDK, but amazingly it is still a 'sharp' and mixed route. The Chief is located on the North Face. It is the far left route up the gully.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is South of Poncho's Vista. See the beta photos.

Protection [Suggest Change]

2 bolts + anchors and an assortment of fingers to hand sized gear.

Rated 5.8 in the guidebook, seemed harder. Not the best rock, "shedding" some. I pulled off a large piece. Aug 9, 2014
