Description

The primary reason to climb this route is to serve as an approach to Back To The Slammer. This route is, however, an adventure if that fits your style.
P1 Loose flakes to start, then a crack in a ramp that's filled with dirt (2005). Excavate for pro. Then an ugly chimney with loose chockstones.
P2 A good pitch. A chimney with a crack in the back followed by liebacking up an arch. We belayed here (stopped early) but finished the pitch with a short ugly pitch to a tree. Lots of swinging around on big stacked, loose, blocks.
P3 We only did half this pitch but it was more standard fare.
