DescriptionThis is a link-up and a classic one at that.
Locate the widening crack in a left-facing corner below the obvious bomb-bay chimney high above. Climb the corner using the widening crack (#5 cam helpful) and layback techniques (this is PATC Lieback). When you top out the crack, continue up to the base of Bomb-bay Crack. You can either continue up or make a belay. If you only have one #5 and no #6, I'd recommend making a belay.
Continue up into the widening chimney, facing to climbers right. Near the outer portion, climb the big eye-bolt and move up to small ledge outside the chimney where there are two manky pins. The #6 (or BigBros...possibly the #5 can go) is helpful here...otherwise you're running it out. Continue up either face climbing or using wide techniques. If going wide (I had to...womp womp), heel-toe camming, chicken-winging and arm-bars will see you through. Good options up top for an anchor with medium gear.
