Description

A good route on the east face with a great view of the lake. Start in a crack/flake system on the southeast toe of the sub formation just right of the obvious chimney. Gain the face proper. A nice pucker factor is obtained passing the second bolt traversing to the third. Traverse right after the sixth (final) bolt into the water groove. Bolted anchors are on the southern edge of the formation. Rap into the chimney. You will be able to get down with a single 70m with some strategic down climbing.

Location

East face of the Subformation to the north of Inner Outlet (known as Little Outlet or the Tastelet), find the large chimney separating the two formations, follow a flake system to the first bolt, look for a seized up locking carabiner on the third bolt (Shaffer's high point).

Protection

6 bolts, .5-4 camalot, bolted anchors
