DescriptionThis climb ascends the exposed arete to right of High Plains Drifter. Excellent, varied crack and face climbing. Some of the best positions on the Chief.
Pitch 1. 5,12c. Overhanging tips layback. Difficult moves around lip (crux) lead to easier hand crack which peters out to tricky face climbing exit.
Pitch 2. 5.12a. Beautiful exposed arete climbing with amazing crimps and multiple cruxes. Bolted but a 00 tcu and yellow alien were used to protect the exit. Down climb ledge to belay below pitch 2 of High Plains Drifter.
Pitch 3. 5.11c. Climb crux pitch of the Drifter.
