Limp Richard, 5.8. The Chessmen.


A really neat struggle up a chimney that starts in between the main formation and a wild detached flake. Top out on the detached flake and sling that puppy.

From the top of this flake you can toss in good gear into a crack on the left and do a serious layback move to a water groove. Toss to a hatchet handjam in a crack and begin the off-width struggle with great jams, crimps, and creative foot placements.

Exit the crack system. Place one more cam in a horizontal crack and gain some wicked exposure, on the sick arete, of a really neat spire with sweet, big holds to the summit.


South Face.


Standard rack. Bring C3's and a few long slings. Once on top move left to gain anchors unless you desire a Needles Style Repel to get you back on the ground.
