Description

Follow the right-angling ramp up to the high first bolt. If you slip going to the first bolt, it's going to be a very bad day for both the belayer and the climber. The climbing is easy if you are solid on this grade, but you're pretty much smearing going to the first bolt on the ramp.

This is a fun technical route that will work on your foot work and your ability to stem properly. The route gets steeper once you leave the ramp which serves as a decent warmup before heading up to the upper tiers.

Location

This is the furthest route on the right side of the Chimney Sweep Wall.

Protection

4 bolts + chain anchors (currently there are NO rap rings). It is highly recommended that you rappel from this route.

A cam protects the start. The crack varies, anything from #1-2.5 Friends/#0.5 to 1 Camalots work. May 19, 2014
