This right-facing squeeze chimney has no protection until the exit move, where you could place a large cam. However, it's quite secure, so you aren't likely to fall out. Rappel from the top.


A prominent right-facing flake at the right side of the southwest face of the rock.


not much - one or two large cams for the top of the flake

Had a brain fart on this climb and didn't even think to chimney it. Laybacked the entire climb on the outside. Definitely a little scarier

a #6 can protect to about halfway up the wide, or just do without. 0.5-3.5" cams would do for a piece before the wide, at its end, and the topside gear anchor
