Climb up the mound to start, after which you will find your first real move to get up the to obvious right foot; then most make one traverse move to the left and then climb up the thin face.


Starts just to the right of the chimney "Hillside Strangler." Climb the face, and a bit of the arete on the right.


Tope rope on trad gear anchor, can be shared with chimney to the left. No bolts, no directional except for running the rope over the top of the climb.

Didn't understand this and neither did others. Did a hold break?
