Description 

At the base of the route, you will see a face with an off width crack rising left to right. Follow the crack to the ledge, walk all the way to the back of the ledge and continue up to a blocky overhang. Shift over the arête to climber’s right and continue to a large ledge. At this point you will rotate almost ninety degrees to climber’s left. You will see a vertical crack to your left on the face, this is the crux move. Proceed up into the chimney.

Location 

The route is on the famous Bondcliff Buttress itself. Standing on the northwest corner, you will see a chimney at your feet. Rappel down to the Great Choss Glacier below, which requires rotating almost ninety degrees to climber’s left halfway down the rappel.

Protection 

Standard rack of nuts and cams. Be sure to have one large one.
