Description

Start up the West Chimney and traverse out to the right past a bolt to a large long ledge system that splits through the middle of the West Face. Belay at the bolts located almost directly above the route "Grand Delusion". Pitch 2 climbs up a blunt arĂȘte past four bolts on knobs and divots to a bolted anchor. Pitch 3 climbs up a low angle crack past a pin to a bulge. Climb over the bulge on knobs through a short runnout to a bolt. Then climb 5.7r to a low angle area and set up a belay in the cracks below a headwall. Pitch 4 climbs the headwall past several bolts on sustained .10b face to a bolted anchor. After the last pitch, traverse to the right to the tunnel through at the top of Hardings Chimney and Scheister.

a yellow alien in small horizontal crack and 6 foot sling is best way to protect the exposed, exciting moves out of the chimney and onto the face.
The Pitch 1 anchor is also a TR anchor for those wishing to thrash merrily away on Grand Delusion Dec 28, 2017
