A line that begins wide and narrows to a seam at the summit. The is just left of the rappel and the wide 5.9. Approach base of chimney and squirm around the big flake to easier climbing above. You can easily pass the overhung stuff above on big face holds.


About 30' right of Frogleg Squimney is a continuous crack starts out as a chimney and tapers to a seam.


standard rack to #4 camalot, bolt anchor/no chains. Walk west to mussy hooks about 30 feet.
