Starts cool, gets cooler. Off-width skills needed. There is a great belay station at the top.


Starts on a crack system to the right of "The Green Lantern". Go straight up and then traverse a bit left to the obvious chimney. Belay in the alcove above. Walk off the spire to the north.


Tri-cams and some nuts will get the job done but cams will help on the bottom.

That's an awesome route, solid pro, we did it several times back in 86 (maybe earlier?), had to pull the loose stuff off the ledge before the off width crux at the very top. A full value route. This used to be called the apartheid wall, I think we named this Gary Player, or something like "lick my love pump", I don't quite remember... May 17, 2015

Great Climb...No anchors though :(

Does this go left (up the chimney) or right (around the arete) towards the top? Aug 13, 2011

In the upper chimney there is a large loose block it will move a bit but wont come out on you. Jul 9, 2010
