DescriptionMy opinion of this route may be a bit marred because of the nesting hornets in every decent gear placement. This reduced me to a sniveling coward halfway up without any good gear...I think the climb would have been a more enjoyable experience otherwise.
Climb the steep, dual-crack system that starts with some bushwhacking. You'll start out in the flared right-hand crack and then traverse into the smaller left crack at some point. I thought traversing into the left crack was fairly committing but pretty easy once you just buckle down and do it.
Climb to the end of the steep crack systems, and continue on easier terrain slinging chickenheads or plugging more gear along the way to the bolt and chain anchor. The anchor should be visible from the ground if you step back a bit.
LocationJust up the hill to the left of the first routes you encounter, this is the obvious dual crack system just left of the big chimney.
