Description

This route has great jamming and laybacking leading up to an interesting squeeze chimney. Mark Sprague cleaned it a bit and put a 2 bolt anchor at the top of the chimney. I went out and led it knocking down some big loose blocks in the chimney in the process.

Start by laying back a big flake at the base of the crack. Make a strong move up to a good hold and a bit of a stance. From here you start jamming about 10 feet of crack from wide hands to fist size. Mantel out of the crack and head left in to the squeeze chimney. 2 bolt anchor at the top.

Nice Job, Lee. I'll let Ward know, but I think the new guidebook may have already gone to the printers May 19, 2009
