Description Suggest change

Jiji Kim was seriously injured while gearing up for Warbonnet in the Wind River Range in 8/7/2020 and was taken off life support a few days later. You can see her climbing in the dark on this route with a headlamp in the photos below, she was very stoked and loved the route. She also loved the crag and the community, so this route is for her. Currently some loose blocks and kind of dirty in the flat section, but leading is fine in its current state. The climbing is different from any other route anyone has done.I have climbed it using OW and handcrack technique, entering the chimney early. Others did a variation of techniques, including all tools and some tools. There does seem to be a point where either hard flared chimneying or cutting your feet to turn in the chimney near the exit is required. All holds are natural. All the bolts are placed in bomber rock and designed for falls outside the chimney, and the exit is spectacular root hooks and turf sticks.

A few bolts lower down are just for keeping the rope out of the crack. 

Location Suggest change

The chimney. 

Protection Suggest change

Bolts to a chain and stainless biners for lowering.
