Description

This route stacks up against the best anywhere and it will challenge every one of your crack climbing skills. Had a huge bridge/block spanning the chimney; the Widomaker. The many-ton Widowmaker block fell out of the chimney in the winter of 10/11. Head up towards the big roof; step left and clip two bolts, climbing on the arête. Tip into the corner. Tips to fingers to hands to a fist crack to the roof. Over the roof a 20 ft 6” crack takes you to the anchors.

Location

Look for the unmistakable huge chimney with the 15 foot roof at the top.

Protection

Single set TCUs 0.1 to 0.5. 2 each .75, 3 each #1-3. Optional #4 and #6 (the 6” portion of the crack is about 5.9 but there's a slight chance you'll be tired by this point). Long slings needed to control drag.
