DescriptionThis is an interesting line with chimney moves to start and a funky crux at mid-height. It is currently the 2nd bolted route from the left on the southwest face of this crag.
There are a lot of rodent droppings in this chimney.
To start, you may see chalked holds to the left of the chimney. That seems to be hard for 5.9. Instead, get into the chimney and use various face holds and stems. Shorter climbers will feel more challenged here. Once you get up a few feet, you will find some nice jugs on the right wall. After clipping the 4th bolt, you will traverse rightward a few feet. Then move up and slightly leftward into the brief crux. The difficulty eases from here.
