  • Description 

    Climb up a wide, low-angle chimney for the first pitch from the North end of the rock. Belay from a huge chockstone, then climb up the steeper face to the summit. The second pitch is the crux and more asthetic than the first.

    Descent: rappel 70 feet from the bolts for "Sneak Preview; on the South end of the summit. You get to a nice position on the second pitch.

    Protection 

    Minimal rack (a few small cams, hexes, stoppers)

    While not epic, climbing this will always be memorable for me. It was my first climb in 6 months. Classic Flatiron's approach, for a short climb there was a lot of adventure. Crack, real chimney moves if you choose to get down in there and nice face climbing. The first move off of the chockstone on the final pitch requires you to step out left onto a foot-sized foot hold with big exposure. Not having climbed for 6 months, this lead got my blood pumping! Great pro where needed but not much needed. I placed a #6 tri-cam just for fun. While I think the crux was 5.6 on the final pitch, I wonder what the opinion is on the chimney. I don't chimney enough to know how to rate them.
