  • Description 

    This route is a good introduction to squeeze chimneying for anyone trying to learn. There are numerous features outside and inside the chimney to help those without perfect technique, and this route can easily be toproped by scrambling around the backside.

    On the right (East) side of the South Face is an obvious, squeeze chimney. Work your way up the chimney utilizing stems on the face for the start until you get sucked completely into the chimney. Use the other cracks inside of the chimney and pop out on to a ledge. Walk off to the right.


    Big gear, no anchors on top, but a TR can easily be built on top of the ledge.

    I find myself liking chimneys and offwidths recently, and my unplanned trip up this was enjoyable. I think it's a great experience, and good practice for those squeeze slots up on the bigger walls.

    Quick and dirty. Fun if you're soloing in the area or need an easy intro to squeeze chimneys, otherwise not really worth a trip.

    This is definitely a squeeze chimney; depending on your size and technique, it may be more of an offwidth. I did it facing both directions and found one way to be more difficult.

    What a fun little route with good protection deep in the crack! Must be pretty skinny to fit or else you are climbing on the outside! Also, don't climb this when it's icy and there is snow everywhere ;)
