Description

A very old route on the east side of the Thumb.

Mark Ward made an early solo (roped) ascent. Probably '71 or '72. Took a leader fall on the 4th pitch and sliced his leg. Finished the route and then went to get stitched up.

Some fixed pins. A little dirty but very historic and one of the original hard routes in the canyon

Location

Start uphill from Spring and Fall. A direct line up a slanting chimney heading for a apex shaped roof.

I kind of thought the 3rd pitch was mank, and I am not adverse to groveling. Jan 11, 2016
