Comments: Great route!

A few notes:

Bring small nuts for the first pitch.

Climb the OW as a 210 foot super-pitch if you want comfy belays. Bring a new #5 Camalot. A 70m rope is nice.

Double rope rappel the first rap, then single rope rappel to the top of the chimney,
then single again, then double, double, double.


Wow, this route is awesome!
