Please refrain from blocking the road, yield to oncoming mining vehicle traffic, and be careful of rockfall and icefall. Please share the road to minimize future access issues with the road's multiple user groups.
For the direct start, start up a faint seam near the first big chockstone on Chockstone Chimney.
Climb up with not great gear, but the climbing is pretty easy...maybe M4? Anyhow, the climbing is easy, but don't fall.
Clip the single bolt belay or if you're starting there, start up. The climbing is overhung trad from here to almost the top...just enough to give you a pump while fishing in gear...good hooks in crack and face, feet to work for, and occasional loose rock. I personally didn't find it too loose, but my partner thought otherwise.
In all seriousness, this is one of the better trad mixed pitches I've done. It climbs really well, and it's never crowded!
