Description

Thin crack left of Chicago - direct start using the face only, the regular route(10b) starts on a platform 10 feet of the ground. Left side of dihedral is off. Contrived, but good movement.

Protection

Could be led with wires, not a safe fall on the cruxes though.

Led the regular route today. There is a bomber .4 Camalot about 6 feet below the crux and the crux piece is a questionable green DMM brass offset. If you were to blow the moves and rip this piece, you would certainly fall onto the blocks of Puff N' Grunt Chimney. Despite this the moves in the crux are technical though easy to read and fun. I wouldn't go as so far to say it's 5.10b though... Cheatah certainly feels harder by a lot. Apr 24, 2011

Did the regular route. The 11b version seemed extremely contrived. Definitely some fun moves at the top going over a roof, but an average climb overall. Nov 28, 2009
