Description

This is a good route that is a great alternative to the first pitch chimney on Napa Valley. It has engaging climbing with great position on some solid rock. I recommend starting on the right side of the arete.

Location

Start a few feet right of the first pitch chimney of Napa Valley. Either climb up the bushy crack on the right side of the arete and traverse on to the arete, or start on the right side and traverse in. The right is better but slightly harder and difficult to protect.

Protection

Draws, a few fingers, and if you go from the left a larger piece. There are two bolts on top.

A real fantastic climb. The moves are all there but require some searching. Crimpy granite hands and feet. So fun! Mar 7, 2013

Pretty sweet route. We ended up taking the line in the 2012 picture. I think it enables you to protect the moves to the first bolt better, plus the climbing looked to be better that way. Just an FYI that a 70m will get your feet back on the ground, a 60m might leave you up the bushy gully a bit. Nov 14, 2016
