Description

This is a fun little line. It is worthy of a quick lap if you are walking by en route to the Chockstone Chimney raps or headed for the East Slabs. I don't know if it's been climbed before, but it should be climbed some more....

Smear up the initial slab to a bulge where you can get a suspicious cam in a licheny slot. Ten feet higher there is a cluster of huecos where you can stuff a #2 Camalot and some tricams if you have them. Then move up left on a ramp that turns into a right-facing corner. The higher you get, the better the gear. When you hit the ridge, head up left to the top of the Lumpe Tower.

Location

This is near the East side of the South face of the Lumpe Tower summit block. From the notch between Tower 1 and the Lumpe Tower, scramble down the gully to the east. This obvious line is on your left. It is just left of a short, huecoed wall.

Protection

Gear is not great on the first half. Tricams are ideal, we had a 2.5, but a little bigger would be better...
