BETA PHOTO: good climb for taking beginners. I'm in the blue s...


Climbs the obvious black streak and crack. The upper section is easier face climbing but on chossier rock. The crux is either getting into the crack, or the initial thin face moves.


9 bolts. chain anchors.

the right side of the chimney can be toproped from these anchors. Fun climbing ranging from 5.7 to harder.

Once at the top, go to the V in the middle. there's a nice place to chill. You can access the anchors for Bolted Chimney easily on the shady side or follow the ledge leading right to other routes.

This route is good fun, especially the crack section which can be liebacked, too bad that section is not very long... The opening moves are thin and tricky, but fun.

A couple holds broke on me right at the two cruxy sections yesterday. Not enough to change the grade a bit, but mind the flakiness of the rock in this route

A top rope can be easily set up by scrambling over from the bolts of The Bulge.
