Description [Edit]

Awesome way to start a day, little bit of exposure to start second pitch.

Location [Edit]

From top of 3-4 gully walk to base of third spire on left and climb chimney to west face. p2 exposed step to shoulder. Rap anchors (webbing) are on east shoulder.

Protection [Edit]

std rack webbing

Very old school route. A lot of awkward moves up a flared chimney / fist crack / stemming problem. Maybe I was just inexperienced at those kind of moves when I did it back in 2009. Lots of respect for the Conn's. Jul 3, 2013
