Description

I named this after a similar climb that I led near the Cookie Monster, in Nevada's Red Rocks.

Between the bolted project (which is just right of Dracula) and Spectre is a recess below a hanging chimney. On Aug 19, I started on the left edge of the recess, using jugs on overhanging face. I clipped a few bolts, then started placing gear. Higher, I reached left with a sling and clipped another bolt. Using my chicken wing, I attempted to burrow into the offwidth, which eventually opened into a dirty chamber. I climbed up to its ceiling and chickened out. I belayed David Light up, and he solved the intimidating exit to the right, to Spectre's anchors. While I was belaying, I noticed a moderate-looking face that exited the chamber from low on climber's right.

Location

Between the bolted project on the left and Spectre, on the right, is an obvious chimney/recess system.

Protection

SR through 4 inches; the optional bolts on the left were gratifying to clip.
