This route starts several feet left of the chimney. Follow face to cracks, to scoops. Since the bolts were chopped, I'm not sure what's on top for anchors.


Maybe small to 2". It had bolts before. I don't know about the anchors.

I went up on top of this today and there are still a couple anchors one lonely bolt towards the south and two on a slope on top 6 feet back from the lip? I suppose you could use those if you extended them out. The originals have been chopped as evidenced by the craters and sleeves remaining :-( Sep 7, 2011

So, the story is that Todd thought his ascent of "I Dress Myself" was an FA and someone chopped it because it wasn't?? Too bad, as "I Dress Myself" likely would get more traffic the way Todd equipped it. Jun 24, 2014

Ben;....from what I gather...the "real" FA went up the chimney......THEN up the face.........We took a line to the left up the bucketed face, and placed bolts. I guess this was too close (and actually joined) the original route......so the bottom bolts were chopped. You can still do the original climb...and we even placed a bolt or two up higher.....and an anchor, which may or may not still be there......... Jun 25, 2014
