DescriptionThis is an interesting route with a little of everything. Overall it is good rock, good protection, and climbs better than it looks. Detractors are getting to it (a little scrambling) and the grainy rock up top prior to the anchors.
Stem up the chimney to a chockstone overhead. Place a piece or two in good stone, then start moving up and out the roof. Place more gear and pull the crux, finger-locking up onto the chockstone (bomber) and onto good feet. Surmount the chock and head up and left to solid cracks. Finish left (softer grainy rock, but secure moves) or right (?better?) to a ledge at perhaps 70-80' up. A fixed belay/rap lies on the climbers' right hand side of this ledge, from which you can rap to the base.
