Description

Easy start with heady finish! Stem, Off-width, and Chimney your way to the top! Guaranteed to get your attention with smooth walls that make you think you might just slip out at any moment--and gear placement is a bit tricky, in close quarters. Otherwise, a piece of cake. ;-)

Location

On the West side of the main pinnacle towers about 30 ft. down from the top of Chutes and ladders. A 60 meter rope will get you to the bottom from the top, but the base of the climb can only be reached with 5th class scrambling--or another pitch to start. Can be reached by circling around the pinnacles from the North after going past the Wedge trail.

Protection

.4 to 3 inches. Cams work well in the cracks that surround the chimney. Nuts are a bit more tricky to place. Single anchor bolt (massive) that can be backed up.
