Description Suggest change

You will never escape the Pit of Despair, the chains are far too thick!
Offset splitter! Initial 25' squeeze chimney leads to a good ledge. It could be wise to bring your belayer up to here for the next bit. Bouldery face move past a bolt leads to nice rest. Followed by desperate tips move. Then sweet fingers to pod, followed by off fingers sprint to the anchor ledge.
Torturous!
Second pitch from hands to squeeze (to rim?) has let to be climbed....

Location Suggest change

Striking splitter that captures your attention for most of the approach.

Protection Suggest change

Double zero to .75 camalot. Optional nuts. A 6 is nice for initial squeeze.
