Climb the chimney (protects with WIDE cams), then step right at the top of the chimney before making one or two easy face moves to reach the summit ridge. Rappel from good anchors on the summit.


Chimney on the northeast (uphill) side of the Seashell


Wide cams (#4 or #5) for the deep chimney crack.
Anchors at the top of the Seashell, about 10 feet left of where the chimney tops out. Anchors appear to be directly above the well-bolted 5.10d climb "Just Getting in the Swing"
