Description [Suggest Change]

This short route follows a wide crack in a right-facing dihedral. Clip a low bolt, then climb slightly overhanging terrain. Below the last bolt, be careful of a large block stuffed in the widest crack section. You could easily pull or lever it out. A fun mantle after the last bolt gets you to the anchors.

If setting up for toprope, be sure to clip the climbing side to the last bolt to keep it from running over the sharp edge below the anchors. Directionals might be helpful for the lower section, since it leans to the right.

Location [Suggest Change]

As you enter the gully for Choppos Chimney and Killer Pillar, this climb will be on your right.

Protection [Suggest Change]

2 bolts on the route + a 2 bolt anchor. Bring a single rack from Metolius #2 to BD #3.

As far as I know, Stanley Vrba was the first to climb it. I went in and added bolts and the bolted anchor. Stanley said he had left a gear anchor in the crack somewhere above the where bolt anchor is now. I called the route Czech Mate in my recent guide. Nov 11, 2016

I personally found this to be one of the better dry tool routes at Skylight area. The crack is made for tools. Mar 9, 2017
