Climb the chimney-crack system utilizing stems, edges, jams, and jugs.


NE aspect Peak 4160 (Wedge ridge) towers at ~3000' elevation. Above and behind the first tower (which hosts S&G, Nineveh, and Great Expectations); climb around the first tower to the right then go left and drop down the gully behind it. Wisdom and Book of Easy Learning are in a nook off to the right of the gully (when descending). Then comes Vain Imagination, Timeless, and Beast of Burden as you continue down this gully.


Gear, one pin, gear anchor.

There are good placements for gear to 5", but smaller gear will suffice (especially with doubles).

Anchor options may exist but there is a good crack in a boulder right at the top out that will accept small cams and medium-large nuts (see photo).
