Wiggle up the chimney (easy) to reach the start of a splitter right-slanting crack which lies on the left margin of the face with Cling Plus; shares anchors with that route.


Start 10' left of Cling Plus and walk slightly left to locate a semi-hidden chimney system which marks the start of this quality route.


Gear to 2 inches, chain anchor

For full value, at the start avoid the "chimney" and jam the crack with feet on the slab.

A great entry level trad climb for us new peeps. Some great hands free spots so you have all the time in the world to place gear with zero pressure. I want to say I used a BD #1 leaving the chimney and then smaller gear and an x4 up top.
