Description

Stick clip a bolt about 10 feet up on the face to the right of a narrow, left-leaning chimney (this is unprotectable without the bolt and would lead to a bad landing if you slip or fall out of the chimney before placing the first piece). Stem the start and make a couple moves to get into the grungy chimney. Awkward hands with places to cam your feet. Protect with #5 or #6 Camalot. Grovel up and left through the crux as the chimney tries to spit you out - skinny people may find this easier than husky types. It is tough to place and clip gear here. After a small shelf, the climb eases considerably, but watch for rope drag. Belay from a tree and gear.

Location

This is on the right side of the Overlook Crag under a small roof to the right of a bigger roof. Walk off and descend to the right of the crag with a short section of scrambling.

Protection

A quickdraw for bolt. A #5 or #6 Camalot first piece, then small cams up to #0.75. A TR will have a big swing and rope drag, but it is doable with tree and gear options for anchors.
