Description

Take the left-leaning ramp with a hand crack to the somewhat awkward flaring chimney with a thin finger crack (crux). Pull a small roof to finish. Good pro the whole way.

Route is just to the left of the large pinnacle. Walk off the back side.

Thin to 3", slings
No fixed gear/anchors.

Fun moderate, and a good link up with "at your pleasure".
Start on a low angle hand crack ramp with positive jams which increases in steepness; then get all up into the chimney. Some of the most fun I've had in a chimney due to the featured nature of both faces, it allows you to get pretty creative and make some really wild moves.

Approach notes:
To the climbers left of the huge boulder from perfect fingers.
The new Miramontes book says you climb the left side of the flake but it is the right side of a left leaning flake. Feb 16, 2015
A nice warm-up for Perfect Fingers. Pretty fun and well protected. The crux in the chimney required some thoughtful stemming and smearing. Overall a much better route than I was expecting. Nov 1, 2016
Great route! One #4 will get you up this safely but a 5 wouldn't hurt. Apr 11, 2017
