Description

Straight up the chimney until you are standing on the large chockstone. The first 25' is chossy, so be careful, but the moves are only about 5.8, and there is good gear. The rest of the route is well worth the chossy start.
From here you climb the crack just left of the wide crack if you don't want to bring off-width protection. Re-enter the wide crack briefly to pull the overhung crux at the top. Belay on gear.

Location

Starts up the obvious wide chimney just right of the large fir tree at the base of the South Face.

Protection

Singles to #4 Camelot. Two #3's is helpful. Nuts.

Awesome route! First 25' is pretty chossy, but if you're careful, it's fine, and protects fine. Once up into the slot behind the wedged block, its good rock and fun OW climbing to the roof, and then cut up under to the left and then up the hand crack to the top. Super fun. Protects well with gear to 3", with optional 4" and 5" cams. Jun 29, 2016

Good seeing you up there George. Adding a top anchor to this one shouldn't be an issue. Jun 22, 2015
