Climb up the crack system to big tree and then traverse left clipping the only bolt to the layback crack that turns into an exciting chimney.


This route is uphill and climber right from Red Tide. Rappel from slings on good tree at the top of the chimney.


Trad to 3"

I think it would be a good route if cleaned up. I had to do a lot gardening as I went up to clear out cracks and clear off ledges - should've taken up a trowel in place of the nut tool. Also disturbed a nest of ants and was bitten (stung?) the rest of the way up. I wound up bypassing the chimney by going straight up - not recommended but with ants running/biting all over me I was looking to just get up to the anchors as fast as possible. Did the chimney on TR - the mid section was a lot harder than the rest of the route. Seemed like it could take bigger gear than the 3" recommended.

If you think you'll climb it: seriously bring a trowel and maybe a stiff brush. If the ants haven't vacated, long sleeves and long pants or tights will help.
