DescriptionThis seems to be the standard warmup climb, and if weather is really bad might be the only thing you can do! If so, really a pretty fun little climb.
Looking from Chimney Pond, look at the left-most flows along Pamola cliffs. This is the second in from the left, with a prominent right-leaning slab at the start.
P1 Up right, over some bulges, belay in a little cave off of screws.
P2 Straight up to the top.
Rap down off of V-threads or manky old gear. Or apparently walk off to the left.
