Description

Another line which needs to be climbed more to clean it up, it could be something more than 'Nothing Special'. Just to the left of 'Chips and Salsa' there is a dark slot/chimney. Often choked with munge and/or plant life. Hump your way through this to a too short fun hand/fist crack to the anchors shared with the two lines to the right.

Location

The large, dark pod/chimney going straight up to a wide hand crack. Ends on a large ledge sharing the anchor with Stegosaurus and Chips and Salsa.

Protection

Standard rack to 3", doubles 1-3". Slings help with the deep placements in the lower chimney. An optional 4" makes the fist crack feel a little more secure.

I agree about the 4", i have done it with and without. Just nice to have at the higher bulge. Fun line, we cleaned it on toprope first, looked like it had never been climbed, later found out what it was. (Before the guide book came out). Another one of those "I wish it was longer" routes at Eagle Peak. I thought it was more 5.9, but that may have been more dirt than difficulty. Jun 6, 2015
