This climb isn't so bad except for the loose grainy rock. Chimney up with finger sized cracks for gear.


This route is the obvious chimney with two parallel cracks on the left side of the west face of Miles of Piles Rock.

Climb over the summit south then down climb a loose chimney west back to the pack. The descent is no fun.


Wear pants or something on your knees, small stoppers and tiny/small cams. Nothing larger than 2". Gear belay on blocks, stoppers or small/medium cams.
