Pitch 1: Start in the 10 ft tall chimney, mantle and arrive at a bolt that protects some loose offwidth/sport until a solid hand crack. Climb an amazing hand crack that eventually turns into a chimney, arrive at a 3 bolt anchor (5.9+)(90 ft). Pitch 2: Make a few (5.7) moves in a hand crack and arrive into a large chimney, stay out of the chimney and face climb (sparsely protected) the remainder of the pitch at easy 5th class, arrive at a 2 bolt anchor(30 ft).


Located at the northerly most point before the trail drops off and becomes steep, it is a 75 foot cut-in section of the wall. 5th class scrambling to the base of the climb. This climb starts just before arriving at Secondhander, on the south side of the cut-in. The start is in a 10 ft tall chimney.


BD 0.3- 4, few stoppers, 60 m rope
