BETA PHOTO: Eye of the Tiger 5.11a with belay ledges. The cru...

Description 

3 pitch route with a ridiculously tough 5.8 bottom where you can choose between the off-width hand crack to the left or the dirty crack to the right. Follow the crack line up to the first belay ledge. Then its up to a roof that you traverse right a few moves with great hand and fist jams(look for the 1" cam jammed deep into the crack). From the roof you reach up into the off-width fist sized right facing flake system which is considered the crux of the route facing flake to the second belay station. Then it's a simple 3rd pitch going right to the top with one last balancy move.

Location 

East face of Chimney about 20' from the right side of the wall. Look for the dual cracks down low and the right facing flake system about half way up the wall.

Protection 

Trad, double rack to 5" with triples in 1-3"
