Description

Awesome old-school chimney pitch! Quite clean varied route of all sizes, with a crux in a tight squeeze serious of moves protected by 1 bolt.

Location

North side towards the West end, obvious slot system.
Rap route with 1 70m rope.

Protection

Singles to 5" is a plenty good rack. Stoppers. 1 bolt? Fixed rap anchor at top off the SW side.

Wow, 50s! Definitely a couple of burly heaves on this one. I encountered no bolt. Feb 3, 2017
A classic 5.7 my axe old school route.
I believe this is from the late '50s (1959 or so) by Bob Kamps. Feb 2, 2017
