Description 

Some climbs are better than they look. This is not one of them. Just when you think the climb may get better you encounter loads of bird dung. So you think staying on the left will avoid all this. Wrong! I went up about 15 feet on the left and found more bird excrement.

So if you get past all this go left around a chockstone. Then scramble off the other side (merge with Trough descent), join Trough to the top or climb a face past another chockstone (left side).

We took a vote. It was unanimous (3-0), pull the gear and get out.

Location 

This is on the Southwest side of Little John's Tower. It is the gaping chimney (see photo).

Protection 

Normal rack plus a #4 & #5 Camalots to avoid most of the bird art.
