Route is on right wall of West Chimney


Climb the first section of West Chimney or a short, strenuous jam crack (right of WC) through shrubbery to the base of the overhanging wall. Aid the left of two overhanging cracks on the right wall of West Chimney past Night Ledge to the top.

5.9 Free variation: Climb OL to the beginning of the aid section, then traverse left into West Chimney. Climb up about 20 feet then go back right to finish OL. 2 pitches. FFA of upper section, Dave Mayville, 12/00.

From the original 1970 guide: "Pin placement above is deceptively difficult at times; a good selection of 3/4", 1", and larger angles and bongs should be carried. The first ascent was made piecemeal, mainly because of time and weather conditions: (first pitch) 4-12-69 by John Wolfe and Dick James; (to Night Ledge) 5-3-69 by same party; (to summit) 5-17-69 by John Wolfe and Howard Weamer.


Aid rack to 3"
