  • Description 

    Mostly shady. Typical crowds for the Park during alpine season. Excellent rock.

    Beta: Start on the underclings and do an easy right hand move. Leave room for your left hand to match on the good part of the undercling or drop your right hand back down to an undercling and bump your left hand onto the good part of the hold. Right hand up to a small crimp. Bring your left foot up to a small knob at your waist and rock over to get the first sloper. Bump to the second sloper grabbing the nose and then match it using a toehook to stabilize. Bump your left hand up to the third sloper, right foot on the first block, then go right hand to the fourth sloper. Left foot up on the good ledge and drop right foot. Get the gaston in the room and then shuffle your feet over using the block, until you can get your right foot out on a loose block (consensus says its wedged in there). Press up to a crimp/sloper at the lip of the roof. Backstep/dropknee on the first or second sloper (height dependent) and go for the sloper over the lip keeping your feet (crux). Punch to the next lip which is a decent jug traversing right. Then reach up to the second "top out" by getting a left foot on the sloper. There are hidden crimps in the rail at the second lip. Traverse the boulder to the left to top out.

    Getting There 

    Go as for Lower Chaos. Locate the Automator boulder (Automator is a very crimpy low ball, and Tommy's arete with its two large jugs make a nice landmark). Head back ("up canyon") about 100 yards hopping the talus to the right of Tommy's Arete.
