top squeeze chimney section, there is a climber in...

Access fees required MORE INFO >>>


Climb the massive crack in the middle of the face. Overhanging hand and fist jams lead to offwidth climbing and then squeeze chimneying up finishing off with a short section of standard crack climbing.


Top of the hill. Middle of the cliff face. Can't miss it. Rappel anchors on top. Good condition. Not easily accessible from top, requires rappelling to safely access anchors if approaching for TR. Also requires several directionals since it is overhanging enough.


Black diamond 2x(#3), #4, #5, #6, bolt with quickdraw, long sling around chockstone, bolt with medium sling, #1, #4.
