DescriptionStart up below a triangular chunk, step left into the crack, and climb up past a tree to a ledge. Stem up the thin crack until it widens to brief hands, then slight right to precarious mantel onto dirty ledge. Top-rope from dodgy anchor on a tree (old rope + biner), or build a gear anchor above (#.5-.75).
Scamper up 4" crack to ledge. Plug small gear and shimmy up slot on right to another ledge. Straight up looks dirty and loose, so go right up the chimney and scramble to bolt anchor on ledge. You can continue up and left (pull on trees) another 20' to a tree at the notch. Great view here!
Rap from sling+biner on tree to P1 tree anchor and then to the ground.
