Fun 3 pitch adventure on the crack just to the right of Kevizan.

1) 110' 5.8
Start the same as Kevizan but stay right when the cracks split. Climb to a small stance and build anchor. The rock isn't the best on this pitch but not terrible.

2) 100' 5.9
Looks dirty but you skirt around the plant filled crack. Awkward crux pulling through steep corner, then fingers and hands to a stance in a corner. Build anchor.

Might be best to move belay directly below chimney. Traverse right through a notch to a large stance.

3) 70' 5.8
Straight up the chimney. Build anchor on top. Walk off.


Next crack system to the right of Kevizan.


Double rack to #3 & one #4
