This is listed for historical purposes. This line follows the obvious, large, chossy chimney. Stem right around the chockstone 2/3 of the way up. There is lots of loose rock, damp face, and exfoliating stuff. It is not the most pleasant route.


The obvious large chimney with cool ferns growing in it. I have never seen ferns growing in Summit County, so this is a unique feature to the wall/route. A single 60m rope will do as will and helmet and sheltered belayer!


Trad gear, there are fixed anchors on the left. Use the mid-point anchors on Steel Your Face to get down with a single 60m rope.
