Description Suggest change

Unfinished project open to anyone willing to continue up to the ledge hand-drilling from stances.  Bring a hand drill and a bolt-- there should be 1 more stance after the crux.  I just ask that you don't change the name or rap-bolt.

Fun and exciting face climbing up an arete on the right side of the Snort Wall, left of a dirty chimney.

The first 2 bolts I ever drilled were on this climb, hand-drilled from calf-burning stances.  The second has been tested dozens of times up to 190 lbs, so it must be good.  There is a bit of gear between the bolts.  Up to the high point there are 2 5.10a-ish cruxes. Both come a long ways above your gear (see picture).  At the 2nd bolt, there is a hard 10 feet of climbing.  This marks the current high point.

I went back with Jake a few years ago to have another go at it and after giving up on doing it in good style we climbed the chimney to put in a TR anchor with the hopes of head-pointing it. We managed to TR it at around 12- or 12, but neither of us were up to the lead.  If anyone is into this sort of fun, it's a worthy climb.

The second pitch also looks good, and would be a similar style.

On the far right side of the Snort Wall, on the way to the Coke Wall, you'll come to a big chimney.  Stop there and look up the low-angle arete on the left side of the chimney.  Don't be fooled by the angle, it's harder than it looks.  There should be a couple of lonely bolts up there if you look hard enough.
