Description 

Rock Climbing Taiwan really botched the description on this one. Given two stars, this route is barely deserving of one. Scramble up the bottom shelf to the wide ledge, walk up to the next crack, scramble up this to the undercling, protect with a 4" piece (no idea why the book only recommends to 2"), then traverse right and mantel up to the ledge. Going straight up through the horizontals could be good unprotected fun, but a fall would be certain to snap some ankles.

Location 

Just left of Pondside Chimney, just right of Discipline Chimney

Protection 

Gear to 4"
Rappel: 316 steel (2011)
